Let's say I open the Update Manager, and my package list is a couple of days old, or I do apt-get upgrade without doing an apt-get update first, what is the result of this?
If there have been updates since I last did a 'check' in the Update Manager, do I not get the latest version? Or do I simply not get updates on packages which had not updates at the time of my last check?
The latest updates brought in an updated update-manager-core (0.161) that requires update-manager itself to be removed, as it's not updated. After falling for this one on one quantal install, I tried to check the Changelogs, and ran into some indications that update-manager was to be re-named Software Updater, but no information about any intention to remove it.
The 2clickUpdate (pronounced: double-click-update) is a front-end for system updates. It is better than your classic Update Manager. You run it and it deals with the rest of its job (update package list, install upgrades, remove obsolete dependencies, free disk space etc.) without bothering user with confirmation dialogs that he would already answer yes.
Just got idea from this(may not be related though) question however.
Are the ISO images from the official site updated with updates in Core Ubuntu system , like Kernel Updates , desktop Environment Updates(unity), i mean Updates of BASE system including X-org, Office suite, Package Manager , Update manager or Gnome Base Modules, those released in update Branches like precise-Updates branch.
I'm trying to update to 12.10 or 12.04 from 11.10, but every time I check for updates or upgrades, nothing comes up. I've messed with the update manager settings from the Updates tab in Software Sources so I'm not sure how to proceed frmo here. Can anyone help me out? :(
