Nothing in life is guaranteed except death and taxes.
IIRC, you must pay the annual maintenance fee to get software updates.

Perpetual licenses don't include maintenance/support. There's a separate fee for that.

no support - ok, I got it

but no updates - that's kinda unfair...

It's how Splunk stays in business, although I don't know how they stop you from downloading the latest software from the web site.
