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)

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
