The latest base hash is the identifier of the latest Urbit OS update, as applied to your ship.

To discover the latest base hash, type +trouble in your Urbit Dojo.  Something like this will appear (the base hash is bolded):

> +trouble
[ [ %base-hash
~[0vi.g9k13.jlls1.n36gj.n1rod.13552.2ffts.2hov5.gj856.9mjti.fm1k5]
]
[%sour-hash 0vi.g9k13.jlls1.n36gj.n1rod.13552.2ffts.2hov5.gj856.9mjti.fm1k5]

If the latest base hash does not match the base hash at whatsthelatestbasehash.com, then your ship is behind.
