I saw the Update Manager icon so it has to be that my computer needed some downloading to do. But as soon as I hit the button for Update, the Updater crashes. I tried to restart the GUI frontend for APT in Ubuntu Unity but again it crashes.
What does a Linux user do if the GUI wont work?
He tries the Terminal, of course. So type CNTRL+ALT-T to get to the Gnome terminal with the blinking cursor. Then update the system by typing:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
If it offers upgrades then hit the enter button. In my case I have a few packages that APT wants to hold back. I noted these packages. Then hit the enter button to proceed with the upgrade.
