What does Synaptic's "reload/mark all upgrades/ apply" do?


What does Synaptic's "reload/mark all upgrades/ apply" do? I just did it and it was installing all this software. Does it upgrade the software I'm currently using or just the software in Synaptic that I might use at some point in the future? Thanks.

You just updated libraries and applications in root and /home on your installed system.

Yeah, you pretty much answered it, jsbjsb001. But I wanted to know if it was installing the information in just Synaptic or also in the software I currently have on the computer.
