    Getting knoppix updates

    I open the terminal window and issue the command:
    "sudo apt-get update"

    This takes a while to run if I haven't updated in a while and runs pretty fast if I've updated recently.

    Seems strange to do this with a terminal command rather than a button or maybe something associated with the Synaptic Package Manager.

    New user Q.

    Linux users like the command line within the terminal

    But alternately you can use the "Reload" icon or "Edit =>Reload package information" within Synaptic.

    Thanks for the information about the reload button within Synaptic Package Manager accessed from the menu "Preferences" item.
