I have a gaming laptop(Dell Inspiron 7567 i7-7700HQ+1050ti) that I bought in 2017..I have not used it since then. I just put it in its box and stored it away.

I am not planning to play games on it. and I have never played any games on it...I want to install linux on it and do some programming on it.

it also doesn't seem to have any heating issues..Should I repaste my laptop now ? if not, when should I repaste it ?

You won't need to unless you see some horrible temps come about. If the temps do sky rocket, and it's not due to an OS glitch/memory leak by Windows 10(assuming you're on it or on Windows 8), due to a clogged venting system then you will logically need to replace the TIM(thermal interface material) then.
