This question was answered by @jtittle:

The most basic way of applying updates would be to use apt-get from the CLI.

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Before running apt-get upgrade I would recommend backing up core configuration files though, if you've made changes (i.e. nginx.conf, php5-fpm.conf, php.ini etc) as there is potential for them to be overwritten.
