I have Ubuntu 11.10 and zend-server 5.3.8-ZS5.5.0.

So I would like to update it time by time. But I don't even know which packages it uses. If I do

apt-get update

it doesn't help.

apt-get update updates your whole system (if that software is part of any repository that is). Not just zend server.

From the zend server website:

Upgrading Zend Server

Upgrading Zend Server can be performed using the following programs:

'aptitude' 'apt-get'

To perform this action you must have root privileges.

It means that the update of this bit of software is done by update manager. If there is no update apt-get will not show any results.

Package name seems to be zend-server-php-x.y where x.y is the PHP version. You can check your repository since there should be a line included for this installation:

deb server non-free

All the packages inside this repository belong to zend server and apt-get update will check these for newer versions.
