Each new version brings very few new tools or improvements.  If your camera isn't new you have little need to "upgrade".  I never use layers, filters, etc.  I use the photographic tool Lightroom whereas photoshop is more a graphic designer's tool.

Agree and disagree.

Photoshop upgrades are generally incremental and typically smallish, on this I agree.

Photoshop is every bit as much a photographer's tool as it is a designer's tool, so on this we disagree (but in an agreeable manner I hope

Some people may not use layers, but I make generous use of them My basic setup action for new photos starts off with 6-layers: Retouching, Color, Dodge/Burn, Dream Glow (skin enhancement), Contrast, and Selective Vignette/Cookie Cutter. It is not unusual to use all of these for any given photo.

That said, I only use Photoshop for important photos or those needing serious rework. Most global and minor spot adjustments are made during raw processing, which also allows non-destructive adjustment layers.
