SYNOPSIS

       update-manager [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Update-manager  is  a  frontend  for  the  apt package management system. It allows you to
       perform some actions of the command line tool apt-get in a graphical environment.

       Update-manager is especially designed for upgrading your system, or migrating your  system
       towards a more recent version.

OPTIONS

       For a daily use, you may launch update-manager with no options so that your system is just
       upgraded.

              Show a similar help message

       -c, --check-dist-upgrades
              Check if a new distribution release is available

       -d, --devel-release
              Check if upgrading to the latest devel release is possible

       -p, --proposed
              Upgrade using the latest proposed version of the release upgrader

       --no-focus-on-map
              Do not focus on map when starting

       --dist-upgrade
              Try to run a dist-upgrade
