-===== Manual System Upgrade ===== 
  
-The manual system upgrade can be done in any terminal emulator, including: 
- 
-   * **Lxterminal** (LXDE, Openbox, JWM) 
-   * **MATE** Terminal (MATE) 
-   * **Konsole** (KDE) 
-   * **QTerminal** (LXQt) 
-   * **Xfce4 Terminal** (Xfce) 
-   * **Terminology** (Enlightenment) 
-   * **Gnome Terminal**, **Xterm**, **Terminator**, **Tilda**, etc., etc. 
- 
-or in a system's terminal, which is available via the keys: 'Alt' + 'Ctrl' + 'F1 - F6' (F7 return to X). 
- 
-All the operations have to be done as system's administrator (root). 
- 
-**Safe Upgrade** - it will upgrade all already installed packages without installing new dependencies: 
- 
-   sudo apt-get update 
-   sudo apt-get upgrade 
- 
-**Full System Upgrade** - it will upgrade all packages, with installing additional new packages required by the upgrade process. **This option is recommended for SparkyLinux**, because it is based on Debian testing. 
- 
-   sudo apt-get update 
-   sudo apt-get dist-upgrade 
- 
-If the upgrading process failed, or to make sure everything gone well, run: 
- 
-  sudo apt-get install -f 
- 
-Make sure that new packages show up in Debian testing daily, so make the system upgrade as often as possible (ones per day is perfect, but it's your choice). 
- 
-If you **DO NOT** want to upgrade a selected package, do: 
- 
-   echo package-name hold|dpkg --set-selections 
- 
-Unblock held package so it will be upgradeable after: 
- 
-   echo package-name install|dpkg --set-selections
