[INFO] How to update any ArcoLinux system

Post by erikdubois » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:26 pm

There are 3 basics steps to do if you want to update ArcoLinux.
Three commands to type in a terminal.

update : installs Arch Linux packages and ArcoLinux packages

skel : copies the new configurations from /etc/skel to your home directory
Only use skel if you see packages installing inside /etc/skel

pksyua : gets the updates for the AUR packages

Then depending on the iso release we may add new packages that you need to install manually.

Got to the ArcoLinux Youtube Channel and search for update and/or rolling. Many tutorials to learn more about updating.

This is the playlist.

Many articles on the websites: ... al/update/
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
