I don't want to d/l and burn 17.1 . How can I upgrade with apt?


A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched.  If you must worry about viruses  on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.

Mate try here for both GUI-style and Terminal.

 

Haven't tried it myself yet - do you want to be the guinea pig or shall I?

Phew (saves me renaming my Linux Mint Mate - Tips & Tricks for 17 Qiana)

 

You might have to startup one for Rebecca? (I might try 'em side by side to compare differences, got heaps of space)

 

Best of luck and I'll look forward to the outcomes!

if you do not hear back from me at least by tomorrow stating the upgrade was a success then it was a failure. I'm not home and so don't have the media to do are install if this blows my computer.

I don't understand bmike, it is included in the new Update Manager under "Edit".  cat1092 explained all this in the Thread about it's release that you participated in.

Quite right, pcpunk - I had not read Cat's Topic in full. And I haven't used Update Manager before

 

However, and for bmike1's benefit as well, my Update Manager shows as this:

Note all the empty space.

 

But in the article I referred bmike1 to:

That update of Update Manager does not show. I will check into this another time, got tea to cook.

 

And good luck again , bmike1
