It is true that upgrading gcc would require that almost all other
software must be upgraded too, since everything is compiled using
gcc/g++ in all Linux distributions and links to libgcc_s or libstdc++.
You might also need to upgrade glibc in order to get compatible C Header
files and libc/libm.

It does seem that you are using a really really old distribution. Even
the most conservative distribution of debian has gcc 4.7 in their stable
packages since 2013.
