How to install updates in Fedora Linux

You can check and install updates in Fedora Linux using the Software app or thru command line. Personally I like command line better since is faster and less trouble some than having to go thru Software.

Thru Software

    1. Open Software
    2. lick on its name (pic below)


    1. A new window will open and just click in Install Updates button


Thru Terminal

    1. Open Terminal
    2. Type to check for updates and if there are nay updates a list of packages will display:

$ yum check-update

    1. To actually install the updates type:

sudo yum update

  1. Type your password
  2. Once it finishes checking available updates it will ask you if you want to install them, just type y

And that is it, you will have everything up to date 🙂

Have a nice one
