How do I to Update to the Latest Software?

New FAQ added to KDE neon FAQ.

KDE neon does continuous deployment of the latest KDE software which means there are nearly always new versions of our software to update to. We recommend using Plasma Discover’s updater which appears in your panel:

If you prefer to use the command line you can use the pkcon command:

  • pkcon refresh
  • pkcon update

This will install all new packages and uses the same PackageKit code as Plasma Discover. Some uses of apt do not install new packages which makes it less suitable for KDE neon.

    The statement about apt is not correct. I is true for apt-get, but not the more modern apt.

      Well for apt it’ll install new packages but it won’t remove any existing packages if that’s the best thing to do unless you do a full-upgrade which is a frequent source of confusion we see.
