terminal command for full updates?

Post by tpprynn »

I've used both sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade this morning both showing no updates. 131mb of updates were then available using the gui.

Is this sounding strange or did I use the wrong command?

Thanks.

Hello, tpprynn.

Make it a habit to run the following commandline first:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
i.e. refresh your local list of available software packages. Only then use

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade
or

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
In case the commandline commands and the GUI still disagree, then click the button [Refesh] or [Reload software list] (whatever the genuine English button label will be).

Kind regards,
Karl
