How does one run the gui updater that pops up on the desktop showing
available updates, from the command line.
If I ssh into the box how can I run that tool. What is it called?
I would normally run `aptitude full-upgrade' but having done that I
see the updater does not agree and that there are still updates
As far as I know, the tool is named APT for Advanced Packaging Tool.
When first setting up a computer (new install), the actual commands I
sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y
But, in order to see everything available before agreeing, you can run:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Or, run those commands one at a time:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
And to upgrade the OS itself (like, say, after a point release) I do:
sudo apt dist-upgrade
Or, add that to the first command:
sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y
Or, to see everything available, again take away the answers:
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt dist-upgrade
As to SSH - I'd defer to the wisdom of other folks on this list.
*But, from what I understand from a quick DuckDuckGo search,
the single command that takes care of everything seems to be:
God Bless You,
