I'm new to Vector Linux and have been a long time debian user. I have opened gslapt and done a update but there don't seem to be any packages to upgrade and i was wondering if this was correct? I used a cd with VL5.9 Gold standard which is about 2 months old.

The massive upgrade feature in gslapt has been disabled by our devs for security reasons (to keep users from messing up a good install). That is because that feature is known for screwing many systems...

So if you know you'd like to upgrade a particular package, run a search for it and do it... the upgrade all button will not work. it's not intended to work

ok i'm used to doing an apt-get update and upgrade to upgrade the system  hmmmm,  what about security updates? Is there another way to do a system upgrade if they are available?
BTW i think Vector is great and its probably the fastest distro i have tried.

If there is a must security upgrade surely will be announced in the forum. What I do is to run slapt-get --upgrade -s at the console. That will simulate a full upgrade and will give me a list of all the packages with a bigger version number. Then I pick the ones I think I need and I install them manually.
