    Hello,


    Unofrtunately I think my GNU/Linux barebones system needs a little update but I have never had to update it before.

    Can someone please easily explain how to update the system? Thank you so much. You are a beast if you can answer this within ten minutes.

    ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64.iso

    Connect to the Internet.
    Input (1 at a time):
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    I am sorry. Maybe I got the distro wrong, but when I rebooted the linux machine I saw this at the top:
    CentOS realease 4.3 (final)
    kernel 2.6.9-78.0.13.EL on an i686
