Package manager on Linux Mint 17.3

In shared on Dec 30, 2015 by theoryl Tagged: , ,

Although Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” is derived from Ubuntu 14.04 “Trusty Tahr”, there are some differences in package management. For instance, Linux Mint doesn’t install “Recommended packages” by default. It also disables Level 4 & 5 security updates by default.

The Linux Mint update manager also allows you to easily select a mirror server. It also comes with a user-friendly menu to upgrade the kernel.
