to update the apt-get itself type: [b]apt-get update[/b] pretty straightforward, right? to update all packages type: [b]apt-get upgrade[/b] pretty simple, right? to update a single package type: [b]apt-get update && apt-get upgrade[/b] and a [b]package name[/b] because why not both, right?

Looks ok for me. Where is the catch? How do you expect it to work? Read your mind?

>>110054 You don't understand what [b]update[/b] actually does and does not. It does not install or update any packages, that's why it does not require any arguments. Actually, you can execute [i]apt-get upgrade <package_name>[/i] without calling [i]apt-get update[/i] before and install a package. Here is your one word.

>>110118 >Actually, you can execute apt-get upgrade <package_name> without calling apt-get update didn't worked for me this way and the line i posted in OP i found in a tutorial: https://www.3cx.com/blog/voip-howto/os-security-updates-debian/#:~:text=To%20update%20a%20single%20package,name%20we%20want%20to%20update.&text=Press%20%E2%80%9Cspace%E2%80%9D%20to%20scroll%20through,apt%2Dget%20upgrade%20packagename%20command. so i assumed apt-get is just retarded

>>110120 >didn't worked for me this way I'm 98% sure you did something wrong. Have you had somehow older version installed and then tried to install something newer? >apt-get is just retarded That's true, but it also applies to any other package manager which based on apt lib. So you won't find anything better most likely.

>>110123 >Have you had somehow older version installed and then tried to install something newer? yes, i tried to upgrade openjdk, but apt-get threw "package not found" exception, despite the package was definitely installed this is why i started to think that apt-get (or whatever is in under the hood) is retarded >So you won't find anything better most likely. that Ubuntu machine is not mine on my machine i use pacman pacman options are less intuitive i'd say, but way easier to memorize IMO
