dCore sce-update Command

The sce-update command is used to check and update all or individual SCE(s) including any dependency SCE(s), view DEBINX (Debian index) diff and available updates if desired.

Process:

  • Updating imported extensions is triggered by sce-update.
  • Called with the SCE name, it checks the repositories for available updates and re-imports the respective packages, merging them into an updated extension. Technically speaking, it works just like sce-import.
  • Noted it works on the level of extensions as opposed to packages. Thus if an extension consists of several packages (or may even be composed from a list of extensions) then all packages in that extension will be tested for updates.
  • On the other hand, one and the same package may be part of several extensions. Thus there is no guarantee that all extensions will use the same version of a package if they are not all updated at the same time.

Usage options from the 'sce-update –help' command:

sce-update - Check and update all or individual SCE(s) including any dependency
             SCE(s), view DEBINX (Debian index) diff and available updates if
