How to correctly update Raspberry Pi OS

  • sudo apt update (to retrieve a list of available updates)
  • sudo apt full-upgrade (“full-upgrade”, rather than just sudo apt upgrade, upgrades also all dependency changes that may have been made.
  • sudo apt clean (or…)
  • sudo apt-get clean (in older systems removes unnecessary files, command not compulsory)
