You mean, if osmosis updates itself? As the path to your osmosis
installation is /home/hsrai/osmosis-0.31 it does not update itself, you
downloaded and extracted it to this directory yourself.

Apparently osm2pgsql (as osmosis in the first problem) is not in your PATH.
If you write "echo $PATH" (without the quotes) you will get a list of
directories. These is the list of directories where your shell searches for
executables. If the executable osm2pgsql (resp. osmosis) is in a different
directory you can either specify its full path (as we did in the
osmosis-example) or add its path to the PATH-variable by typing "export
PATH=$PATH:/path/to/directory" (attention this is temporary and valid only
for the same shell you were in).

But as this discussion is getting rather off-topic you should consult 
some guide book on shell programming. There are so many guides to shell
programming on the internet, it's hard to recommend a specific one.
For some information on the PATH-variable you could consult this:
