I am trying to determine which programs will receive auto updates on my Ubunutu 16.04LTS PC.
I have installed these programs via the software center:
I have installed these from command line by adding a ppa and installed using apt:
When I use Synaptic under the status tab and
Installed (manually) if I sort by non-Ubuntu installed I can see all the programs listed above.
If I then click
Installed (upgradeable) the only non-Ubuntu installed package is
- Why is
google-chrome-stablethe only one listed as upgradeable?
- How does Synaptic determine a package as 'upgradeable'?
- I assume the software center updates will infact be updated as I think I have seen this in the software center itself, but would that happen through apt-get update?
I am trying to understand if programs installed using these methods are auto updated:
- Downloaded via Ubuntu Software Center
- Via command line by adding a PPA and installing
- By downloading a .deb and installing (e.g. Dropbox)
I am correct in thinking that
apt-get update will update any software which was installed using an apt command originally?
So if it was a .deb it is installed via dkpg and therefore apt-get wont apply, if so is there anyway to automatically update these?
