I've tried to apply the 139 software updates that are recommended (by someone) but am unable to past entering a password, presumably for "Root", that I mistakenly chose on a first install. I have reinstalled Felicia XFCE CE without a login or a root password (as recommended), but the 139 updates are still an open padlock on the bottom line ("Task Bar???).
The original root password entry must have had a typo (twice!!) without me realizing it. The reinstall (for other reasons) seems to have kept the password. This leads to four questions:
o How do I correct an unknown password so I can get the update program to work (if it is still necessary to have it)?
o Are the 139 updates necessary?
o If so, can I get them installed without entering a password? How do I do it?
