All the drivers already installed on your system are up-to-date after
each time you successfully run Update Manager from the System ->
Preferences menu. Or you could enter "sudo apt-get update && sudo
apt-get upgrade" from a terminal.
Are you having hardware problems?
If so, please tell us about your symptoms and the make, model etc. of
the hardware in question. If it is a USB device, please send the
output of the command "lsusb -v". For most other devices, the output
of "lspci -v" would be equally useful.
