NAME

       system-update — update a Debian system automatically

SYNOPSIS

       system-update [options ]

DESCRIPTION

       system-update  will  update a Debian system.  The sources.list.security
       and sources.list.default  APT  package  resource  list  files  must  be
       present  (see below) and /etc/apt/sources.list must be a symbolic link.
       The    default    action    is    to     use     the     sources     in
       /etc/apt/sources.list.default  after  applying  any  updates  from  the
       /etc/apt/sources.list.security sources  file.   If  the  -s  option  is
       specified,   the  /etc/apt/sources.list.stable  sources  will  be  used
       instead of the default.

COMMANDS

       -h        Display help summary.

       -r        do NOT resychronize the package index files.

       -p        Specify  a  package  list  in  place  of  /etc/update-system-
                 packages.

       -s        Upgrade   with   security,   followed   by   stable   updates
                 (/etc/apt/sources.list.security                           and
                 /etc/apt/sources.list.stable  must  contain  the  appropriate
                 sources).

       -S        Upgrade       with        security        updates        only
                 (/etc/apt/sources.list.security  must contain the appropriate
                 sources).

       -y        Assume YES for all APT queries.
