Just not the ones who serve the Overmind. As Karellen said they have become as advanced as they can and can go no further. The reason is ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts See, Jan (book)/Milo (series) did not die with the rest of humanity ''because he was not on Earth''. The Overlords on their home planet ascended to join the Overmind, but the ones on an offworld colony ''weren't there''. You have to be on your home planet to ascend. The Overlords who joined the Overmind are the ones directing their distant relatives to do the Overmind's bidding. So the reason their "technology led them astray" was you need to join the Overmind ''before leaving your home planet''.

[[WMG: Overmind is actually a parasyte.]]
Many parasitic wasps tend to find victims, immobilize them and placing larvae in them, which then grows and consumes its host. If you look at the event from this angle, Overmind might just breed it's offspring to expand itself, using civilizations as hosts. Overlords are there to help pacify and de-fang the victim civilization, so it couldn't resist, and ''wouldn't even wanted to''. So there's no "ascension to a higher plane of existence", only murder. The Overlords directly state that, saying that "these children aren't yours".

Maybe the Overmind already cleared out that far away galaxy a long time ago after the Force was balanced! Maybe that's the only way to stop the Dark Side - not give anyone the chance to create a galactic civilization.
