NGINX update/upgrade

I just upgraded my NGINX (originally from One Click App LEMP) using this command

sudo service nginx stop
sudo apt install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nginx

Am I doing it right? Previous version was 1.10.3 and now I have 1.12.1

And also, between sudo apt update and sudo apt-get update, is it have any difference?

Hi @MrWorldWideWeb

Yes, that looks correct. Just skip sudo apt update, since you’re doing it with apt-get.

There’s small differences between apt and apt-get. Use apt-get for the most things, since that’s the lowest level - you can read more here:
