How to install updates on Linux

To update Linux, you will need to use the package manager specific to your Linux distribution. Most Linux distributions use either the apt or yum package manager.

YUM Package manager

The yum package manager is a command-line utility for managing packages on Linux systems that use the RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) package format. It is commonly used on Red Hat-based Linux distributions such as Fedora, RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), and CentOS.

APT Package manager

The apt package manager is a command-line utility for managing packages on Linux systems that use the DEB (Debian) package format. It is commonly used on Debian-based Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Raspbian.

These commands will update the package list and install any available updates for your system. Keep in mind that you will need to have root privileges to run these commands, so you may need to use the “sudo” command to run them as the superuser.

It’s important to keep your Linux system up to date, as updates often include security fixes and improvements to the operating system. If you have any trouble updating Linux, you can try consulting the documentation for your specific Linux distribution for further assistance.
