How to update Slackware using slackpkg

From a terminal with the appropriate permissions enter

Nano /etc/slackpkg/mirrors

Now comment out, remove the #, one of the mirror selections; it would be best to pick from that is close to you.  Once done press the control key along with X at the same time and save the file.

Before using for the first time you will need to update the GPG key.  You do this from a term by entering

slackpkg update gpg

You will only have to do this once.

Now you are ready to run updates.  The commands to enter one at a time, in the order that they should be entered, as each finish are:

slackpkg update

slackpkg install

slackpkg upgrade-all

slackpkg clean-system
