How to upgrade packages in Ubuntu

In this guide i am going to show you how to upgrade packages to the newest versions,

First thing we need to do is resynchronize existing packages this is recommend, open up Terminal by pressing Ctrl Alt T or right click on the Desktop then press Open Terminal.

Now type sudo apt update, Enter Password it should look something like this,

Once doing that you will notice that there are 2 packages to upgrade or maybe more depending how often you upgrade the packages. To update packages we need to type, sudo apt upgrade -y the -y means yes to all packages so we won’t need to type y or yes to continue the upgrade of the packages. Once doing the following it should look like this once done.

Now if we re-run sudo apt upgrade -y you will notice that all packages are all up to date. 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.

Hope this guide helps you. Enjoy.
