Update Manager for Linux Lite 4.x Series

Update Manager seems to be a welcome addition not just for my Linux Lite installs. A few hundred users do prefer the stripped down version I made available for Linux Lite 3.x Series. Well, Linux Lite 4.x is out and I have’t posted in the blog for a little while (work and life is keeping me busy) and I honestly forgot to mention that a Diamond (bionic) version is available in my repository. Read no more, if you want to use Update Manager in Linux Lite 4.x just install it as follows:

 

Installing Update Manager

To install Update Manager, from Terminal:

Add Unlockforus repository to if you haven’t done so yet:

~$ echo "deb https://unlockforus.com/repository/dists/bionic/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unlockforus-bionic.list

And add the PGP key:

~$ curl -s https://unlockforus.com/repository/keyFile | sudo apt-key add -

Finally, install Update Manager:

~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install mintupdate-lite -y

Update Manager

The new version features the same options available in previous versions so you shouldn’t miss a thing :)

Buy Ralpy a coffee :)

Cheers!
