SYNOPSIS

upgrade-system

DESCRIPTION

upgrade-system is an APT front-end that simplifies regular upgrading of Debian systems, only requiring an administrator's intervention whenever updated packages necessitate the configuration of new features. The command sequentially performs the following operations: · Synchronize the list of available Debian packages. · Upgrade all installed packages to their newest versions. · Recursively uninstall all obsolete package dependencies. · Clean retrieved archives off the APT cache.

ENVIRONMENT

Setting the FLAUSCH environment variable enables useful advanced system sanitization fea‐ tures. See upgrade-system.conf(5) for more details.
