Update Lithium (Noobie question) [SOLVED]

I just installed Lithium on a slow HP laptop 2 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD HD... It work like a charm ! Good job

What is the easiest way to update / keep up to date our installation ? Do you have some automated mechanism taking care of that ?

Tks again for the great work...
Note : I run the post installation wizzard and choose to install the 100 MB extra Background pictures and I can't locate/findthem....

Re: Update Lithium (Noobie question) [SOLVED]

If you installed from the Lithium test iso then you have the necessary entries in apt's sources lists, so all you need to do to keep up to date is to run these commands every few days in a terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

bunsen-images-extra is not yet available for Lithium, so choosing that item in the post-install script will likely do nothing. smile
Anyway, when available they will be installed to /usr/share/images/bunsen/

Not by default, but it can be set up.
Search the forums for unattended-upgrades, I think there was a recent discussion.

Was just looking for a good debian live cd and started reminiscing about crunchbang and ultimately ended up here when I came across your question.

What is the difference with apt-get update  (Noobie question but...)

Tks !

JF
In a different thread, someone gave me that article that is very good
https://www.techrepublic.com/article/ho … e-upgrade/

I suppose I could always :  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  ?  Suppose it need to be preceded by sudo apt update ?

With Linux you can always search the manual pages.
Terminal: man <package>
e.g.

man apt

What is the difference between a duck? wink
I assume you mean what is the difference between the two commands above?

  • update: Updates the repository list (only the list, not the software) from a remote server. Mandatory Strongly recommended before every software installation/upgrade.

  • upgrade: Look for new version of installed packages and upgrade them

My question was, what is difference between apt-get update   and apt update  but I got my answer.... apt update is the new way to do it...

Not quite true.
apt update / apt upgrade is newer and prefered as manual command.
apt-get * is prefered command, when skripting.

I suggest you get into the habit of looking at the documentation hmm  It usually answers your questions.

man apt
man apt-get
man aptitude
man synaptic

Most users choose whichever suits them.
