Hi guys.  Some people prefer to not have to intervene at all with the update and upgrade processes of their Ubuntu system, because they rather have the system to be automatically updated and upgraded itself and just logged the progresses to a log file, in silence.  Of course, there are other people who prefer to have Ubuntu asks them for permission to upgrade through graphical user interface, and this is fine too.  Nonetheless, I like the former idea better.  Therefore, if you want to have Ubuntu automatically updates and upgrades itself without making a single fuss, then you should watch this video.  For your information, in this video, I will use aptitude command line instead of apt-get command line to allow Ubuntu system to be up to date.  How come?  Well, let just say I prefer aptitude package manager over apt-get package manager.  Nonetheless, you can just switch out the aptitude commands for apt-get commands, and you will still be able to achieve the same goal.  Enjoy this educational video!!!

I think many Linux beginners might have the fear in learning how to use command lines on Linux.  Instead of playing with command lines on Linux, many Linux beginners might just stick to popular graphical user interfaces that come along with the popular Linux distributions.  Of course, there is nothing wrong with this!  Unfortunately, sometimes, there are things on Linux can only be done through command lines, therefore some basic knowledge of command lines on Linux would be useful in the long run.

In the video right after the break, I won’t go into how to use specific Linux command lines, because I might create short videos but full of detailed instructions for essential command lines in the future.  This is why you may find me giving Linux beginners a pep talk and some insights on how to learn command lines on Linux in the video right after the break.  Enjoy!
