You can try the following cli to keep your droplet up-to-date, clean and secure: <br> <br>apt-get update && aptitude dist-upgrade -y && apt-get autoremove -y <br> <br>HTH <br>

You may also be interested in aptitude, which is a command-line, “graphical” interface to the package manager. It can be installed with the following command: <br> <br> sudo apt-get install aptitude <br> <br>After running sudo aptitude, the following basic commands are used for navigation: <br> <br>* Ctrl-T: open the menu bar. <br>* +: mark a package for installation. <br>* -: cancel the pending installation of a package. <br>* g: Proceed to the package selection confirmation screen. <br>* g: Press again to confirm your selection. <br>* q: Or press to close the current view and return to the package list. <br> <br>These are the absolute basic operations, of course. For details, see the documentation: <br> <br>http://algebraicthunk.net/~dburrows/projects/aptitude/doc/en/ <br> <br>Chapter 1 is a good starting point, and aptitude can really be a great tool to get to know!
