Thank you. I am using Iceweasel.
So does this mean I open up the root terminal and enter the 'update' and upgrade' commands?
I think I have done this.
However, I'm uncertain if this is updating all the software on my OS.
Once the message box 'software updates are available' appears, I'm guessing this means new software updates have been created. Even so, this may not be useful for me because I may not even have the software installed on my system.
So I'm wondering if there is a command which will look through all my software and update them from the debian repos.
Is that command 'apt-get upgrade' or are there more commands?
