Upgrade to UP5 via command line

Postby userzero on Mon Sep 24, 2012 11:13 am

Hi All,

I'm going to try my hand at upgrading to UP5 via command line. Should I be using "aptitude dist-upgrade" or "aptitude upgrade"

Actually, if someone knows of a tutorial for command line upgrade instead of using Mint Update, that would be great. Didn't find what I was looking for via Google.

Thanks Much GeneC,

This is what you want to use for LMDE

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

ALSO
run in terminal for man
Code: Select all
man apt-get


Apt vs. Aptitude
(apt is preferred for LMDE)
