command line equivalent of mandrakeupdate?

For whatever reason the support for my SiS5598 video card is broken and the mouse has an unusably slow tracking speed. Since this particular machie is primarily a server I don't necessarily need X. In any case that means I cannot use MandrakeUpdate. How can I reasonably get the equivalent functionality in command line (is there a CHUI version)? TIA.

Try this: (as root)
#urpmi.update -a
#urpmi --update --auto-select

The sources must be configured before you can update! Try man urpmi
