Preferred way to upgrade KDE Neon ?

Thu Nov 05, 2020 7:45 pm
So there are three ways to upgrade KDE Neon:

(1) Discover

(2)
Code: Select all
sudo pkcon refresh && sudo pkcon update


(3)
Code: Select all
sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade


except for snaps and flatpaks, are all these three methods 100% identical ? any differences ?

When you upgrade using Discover, it uses the command in (3) + additional commands for snaps ?
When you upgrade using (2), it uses the command in (3) + additional commands for snaps ?
When you upgrade using (3), it uses the command in (3) only ?

Is there a down side in using Discover ? does it leave any residues ?

what is the preferred way of upgrading ?

According to the official KDE neon website FAQ the preferred way is with pkcon commands. According to the info there the apt or apt-get commands could fail to pull all packages necessary.
