update-manager - graphical management of software packages updates
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.
For a daily use, you may launch update-manager with no options so that your system is just upgraded. For migration purposes, update-manager accepts some options: -h, --help Show a similar help message -V, --version Show version --data-dir=DATA_DIR Directory that contains the data files -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 -s, --sandbox Test the upgrade with a sandbox aufs overlay, without changing the filesystem.
ACTIONS PERFORMED DURING AN UPGRADE TO A NEW VERSION
