So far as I remember, the Netrunner Team is recommending the use of the (mintUpdate) Update Manager.
Because of concerns relating to system stability as described under Level Description in Preferences of the (mintUpdate) Update Manager, I unmarked both levels 4 and 5 (Safe & Visible).
- Id’be interested to know why unsafe and dangerous updates are being offered to download in the fist place risking breaking the operating system?
The updates offered in Discover do not correspond with the updates offered in (mintUpdate) Update Manager.
2. Based on Netrunner Team suggestion, why is the system update function in Discover still enabled?
I noticed after installing Netrunner 19.01 to my laptop and booting first into the system the Discover update displays itself prominently in the taskbar panel prompting updating the system.
3. Instead of the Discover update showing would it not be preferable that the (mintUpdate) Update Manager be moved into the foreground?
I just installed Netrunner 19.01 to my desktop using the selfsame source (USB-stick) as used for my laptop.
After updating and switching from Netrunner Black to Netrunner Desktop I noticed that some items in ‘Other Software’ are not the same. I don’t know the significance of theses differences.
3. What are/will be the consequences on updates for my desktop/laptop computers?
4. Is it okay that the Officially supported (main) checkbox is unmarked?
5. And would it not be worthwhile to consider to amend the Tips in the README tutorial and include advise relating to:
a) The preference using (mintupdate) Update Manager instead of Discover,
b) Enabling Continuous Updates, and
c) Recommended sequence of updating at first boot into Netrunner, i.e. enabling continuous updates before updating with Update Manager or the other way around.
I am somewhat perplexed in relation to upgrades offered in the Synaptic Package Manager.
After pressing the ‘Reload’ and the ‘Mark All Upgrades’ buttons, Synaptic indicates a large number of available upgrades.
Based on my conservative approach to updating the system, how should I go about upgrading the system without ‘breaking’ it?
Should all or some of these upgrades be implemented or should they be ignored or selectively applied; What is the determining factor applying these upgrades correctly?
How safe/unsafe is it using the command(s) in Konsole:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
