Updating Your Linux Ubuntu System

If you are like me you like to use the terminal commands to update your linux Ubuntu System. Its fast and easy if you know the command. I am putting the command lines in this article so you can copy and paste them.

First login as root then navigate to your root folder.

sudo su  #logs you in as root
cd / #navigates you to the root folder

If you use the following commands you will only have to enter your root password once. Then the above step is not necessary. 🙂

sudo apt-get update        # Fetches the list of available updates
sudo apt-get upgrade       # Strictly upgrades the current packages
sudo apt-get install --fix-missing    #fixes anything missing that it can fix
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  # Installs updates (new ones)
sudo apt-get clean #Cleans up and speeds up your system

Enter the three lines above in order and you will have an updated machine.
