The other day we decide that a clean install of Ubuntu was on our imaginary to do list, on a random lap top, just because…
Now that we’ve added our new Ubuntu operating system, it’s time to use the terminal to update and upgrade Ubuntu.
As with anything in life, there’s always more than one way to skin a cat and we both know we’re not going to try to say which one works for you.
For the now, in our head, using the terminal works for us.
Keep it simple stupid and away we grow
Open the Terminal
- Press Ctrl, Alt and T keys at the same time on your keyboard
When the terminal opens, type the following to check your system for any updates available
- sudo apt update
- Once you enter sudo apt update & press enter you will be asked for your password
- Enter your password & click enter again & your system will check for any updates available
- sudo apt upgrade
- Enter your password & click enter & your system will check for any upgrades available
Update and Upgrade Ubuntu
- sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
- enter pasword
- System checks for updates available
- System asks if you would like to install updates available
- Do what you do & click enter
We both know this ain’t a how to guide, just a personal record of what we did when.
