APT Package Management

Length: 00:06:40

Lesson Summary:

Learn how to work with packages on a Debian-based system using APT.


"apt update" downloads available package information from your repos.

“apt upgrade” upgrades packages listed in your repos. It resolves dependancies, but doesn’t remove existing packages.

“apt full-upgrade” does the same as “apt upgrade”, but it will remove a package if that action is needed to update the system.
