  1. Nice info – and a great idea, too.
    But I think you’ll find that ‘apt-get update’
    just resynchs the package indices.
    ‘apt-get upgrade’ …will install the newest versions of the packages that you have installed, but will leave the old packages available. Will not upgrade a package if it means changing the status of other packages. Needs ‘apt-get update’ to be done first, NB.

    ‘apt-get dist-upgrade’ …does the ‘upgrade stuff , handles dependencies and does the whole job, hopefully!

    The ‘apt-get autoclean’ and ‘autoremove’ options are worth digesting, they help to keep unwanted clutter under control, but only after checking that all is well with the new packages.

    hth, Ben

    • Cheers Ben,

      I’d found out about the update vs upgrade difference, the rest is new to me, thank!

      From the sounds of it, autoclean and autoremove could be very useful for stripping the gumph littering up my drone.
