Update and Upgrade Ubuntu

Update and Upgrade Ubuntu

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

Enter password

  • 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

Upgrade Ubuntu

  • sudo apt upgrade

Enter password

  • 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.
