Ubuntu updating packages
Linux manages software through packages, individual units of software that contain user interfaces, modules, and libraries.
Most applications link several co-dependent packages together, and still others allow you to choose which packages to install and which to leave out at your own discretion.
If there are dependencies – other prerequisite packages – they will also be installed.It’s a great way to clean up any unused libraries and packages you don’t need. You can upgrade individual programs with the following command: This will tell you how many and which packages need updating and will ask for a confirmation before it continues. Upgrade will replace older versions of programs with their newer versions.This is a replacement process; the same package name is required and the older version is replaced with a newer version.Administrator privileges in Windows are required to run ping in WSL.
To run ping, run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows as an administrator, or run from a CMD/Power Shell prompt with administrator privileges. If while working with bash, you find that bash is hung (or deadlocked) and not responding to inputs, help us diagnose the issue by collecting and reporting a memory dump. Do not do this if you are not comfortable with that or save your work prior to doing this.
This can get confusing, so there’s a package manager at your disposal to help Each Linux distribution has its own package management system.
