Just a reminder to myself on how to update my web server after logging in through SSH. Most likely you’ve seen a similar message:
30 packages can be updated. 24 updates are security updates.
Updating through the command line will take a few steps:
- First, fetch the list of available updates avilable by running the following:
sudo apt-get update.
- Next, fetch new versions of packages:
sudo apt-get upgrade.
- Lastly you can run the
sudo apt-get dist-upgradewhich will intelligently install dependencies of new packages.
If you’re also seeing:
*** System restart required ***
Restart your server with
sudo reboot. Your SSH session will be terminated and you’ll have to login again.
Here’s some more information I found about it on the webz.
