Deepin Software Center - A Suggestion


I just installed Deepin Linux version 12.06_en. When I went to check for updates, I clicked the Software Center, and then Upgrades. There were over 100 programs to install.
I was unable to find an option to install everything. Rather than go down the long list and clicking the icon to install one by one, I closed this out, went to terminal, and keyed in sudo apt-get update, and then apt-get upgrade.
If the option to upgrade everything with one click isn't available, I'd suggest adding it in a future version.
Thanks.

This option is disabled temporarily due to performance issues and will be added soon in the next version. Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

I'm new not only to Linux Deepin but also to Linux (though I have tried a few). So I'm sitting here reading this on one PC while clicking my way through 220 upgrades on another. Only 41 to go...

Despite that, Linux Deepin looks like a winner

Actually, you should familiarize yourself with the command line interface and learn a little knowledge about package management in Debian- and Ubuntu-based operating systems. As for the updates you can open your terminal and input the following command to do it.

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
IMHO, the command line interface is a fairly, if not the most important thing you need to grasp if you really want to enjoy Linux.

Good luck with your learning. And sorry for the inconvenience by the way

Thanks for the prompt reply, lihongwu, another little plus for Linux Deepin. Looks like a very nice distro so I'll give it a good try-out.
