Update manager [SOLVED]
« on: October 15, 2015, 09:57:31 am »
Does update manager do the same thing as running the upgrade command in terminal? I've noticed that update manager updates my packages every few days. When I go and run the upgrade command, there's nothing. Is this just a more user friendly way of keeping the system up to date? Because if so, great. I've noticed one of the main complaints keeping my friends from Linux is that they don't want to mess around with the command line. By making more of the tasks user friendly, that eliminates one of the biggest complaints keeping many people from Linux.

Using the update-manager is exactly the same as running:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgradedoes that answer your question ?

Very much, thank you. Basically, I was wanting to know since I use update manager, if I need to run the upgrade command, but since it's already being done, then no, I don't.
