A month or two ago, I installed the latest version of Puppy Linux to an old Eee PC which I hardly use any more. Well I'm on it now! But I can't figure out how to update it.

It uses a weird Puppy package manager which only seems to have options for installing and uninstalling things. I found an option to update the database, but that didn't actually update any of the software on my system.

I've looked through the menus several times and don't see anything that says update.

How do I update Puppy Linux??

Another link which might help you is : Update from 4.1.2 to 4.2
