Upgrading Packages Ubuntu

We have made these tutorials available for your convenience. However, this tutorial cannot be completed on any of the current hosting packages from pair Networks.

Overview

Under Ubuntu, installed packages can be updated to their newest version via
apt-get, following the same process as if you were initially installing
them.

To update a package, first, make sure that the package index on the server
is up to date by running:

sudo apt-get update

Next, the package itself can be upgraded to the newest version with the
following command, replacing PACKAGE with the name of the package:

sudo apt-get install PACKAGE

If the installed package is already the newest version available, the
apt-get command will state that in its output.

The full usage of the apt-get command can be viewed at:
