    Default How to update OpenSuse11 from terminal?

    Hello all.
    I have to say that i am an Ubuntu(on my PC) user and also an OpenSuse(on my laptop) user. On Ubuntu, to update my programms i write:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and Ubuntu update my programms.
    For OpenSuse 11 i have found this link:
    Software Management Command Line Comparison - openSUSE
    and i have used also :
    Code:
    su
    apt-get update
    but no updates were availables.
    I have to say that from 2-3 weeks no updates appeared to be installed.
    How can i see if my update command it's really working?
    Thank you!!

    dup or up?

    dup I believe is distro update, e.g. 11.0 to 11.1.

    I have used
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup
    and it seems that some applications were updated.
    Were some conflicts in the dependencies but i have choosed "Solution 3: Ignore some dependencies of ...".
    I don't know if this is bad or wrong but....i will see.

    I'm more bothered about 10.2 than 11.0 but is there an equivalent to YaST |
    Software Management | Package Groups | zzzAll | (RMB) All in this list |
    update if newer version available ?

    Am I right in that

    # zypper refresh
    # zypper up -t package

    would do this?
