Chapter 6 Upgrading Ubuntu Software

6.1 Update and Upgrade Ubuntu

Run the following commands to upgrade your Ubuntu Machine. During the 3rd step (sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y), you will get messages asking whether the locally modified configuration of packages should be replaced with the package-maintainers version. You can select either option:

  • ‘replace’ will update the package with the newest version
  • ‘keep’ will keep the existing library - I’ve made sure everything works with this option.
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
