The aversion to updating the tech stack is mostly about money.

Corporate overloads don't want to commit to splitting the team for maintenance and new dev, and by the time development is complete and the product has gone through the testing phase, a "new thing" has been introduced, and the stake holder wants the newest shiny object, which really isn't compatible with the way the new code has been developed.

Tech moves so bloody fast that it almost destroys the co-concepts of code re-use (how can code be re-used if the basis on which it was developed is no longer "a thing") and separation of concerns ("concerns" seem to get more fragmented every day, and need to be micro-separated). Devs can't possibly hope to keep up because tech keeps leap-frogging their skill set.
