Perform package upgrades

The next step is to turn your installed packages into the shiny new versions, which you can do using a slightly different command in the terminal window:

sudo apt-get upgrade 

Insert it (remembering to prefix it with sudo, which tells Ubuntu to perform the action as a super user) and apt-get will hammer through the list, marking and installing any packages that have fallen behind the times.
