Update Bodhi 5.0 Legacy 32 bit.


I've been using Linux Mint for over a year now, and it does work great, however I have a very old Dell PC that is 32 bit, I installed Legacy Bodhi 5.0 32 bit on it and so far I find it very different from Mint. For one, I can;r find where to do system updates. For another I don't see a package for installing FireFox or Google.

work?

Thank you.
I saw that, but I thought there might be an easier way.

and update it from there?

Thank you for all your help, but I found it a little difficult to understand (like I said, I'm somewhat new to Linux). I've settled on Linux Mint Cinnamon, but, of course, it wouldn't work on a 32 bit machine. I found Linux XFCE 32 bit and that works great!

Glad you found something that works for you and sorry I wasn't more clear.
