System Updates

One of the most important things you can do to keep your node secure is to make sure your system is up to date.

To see a list of available updates, run the following command:

sudo apt update

This will list all the available updates but it will not install them. To install the updates, run the following command:

sudo apt dist-upgrade -y

Automating the update process

You can also automate the update process by enabling unattended upgrades. This will allow the system to automatically update your system when a new update is available.

  1. Install unattended-upgrades
    sudo apt install unattended-upgrades
  2. Enable unattended upgrades
    dpkg-reconfigure --priority=low unattended-upgrades
  3. When prompted, choose Yes to enable unattended upgrades.
