No it means what it says, that the last time this router received a routing update from a neighbor 14 hours ago. That happens for example when the network changes (maybe 14 hours earlier the other router rebooted or a link was added). The exact meaning and working of the timers depend on the routing protocol (OSPF, EIGRP, RIP, etc.)
