Hi, I really loved Trisquel 8 OS, Mate DE.

Now, I'm on Triskel 9, KDE Desktop Environment.

I really love Triskel 9, however, how do I update my OS to patch Triskel 9?

On Trisquel 8 I'd run the 'Software Updater tool' which would install security patches.

However, on Triskel 9, I can't find the 'Software Updater tool'.

I've tried doing:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

But I'm not sure if these commands ^ update the OS itself, or just some packages.

So, Im primarily intersted in updating for security patches, how do I update my OS on Triskel 9?

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

That keeps all the packages up to date. You can drop the "-get" for a nicer interface:
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade

Those commands update "Operating System Security Patches" too, right?

You probably come from OpenBSD where they use 'syspatch' to get security patches, 'sysupgrade' to get a new OS version and 'pkg_add -u' to update other than base packages.

Trisquel is a GNU/Linux system where 'apt update/upgrade' updates all packages, including default packages and packages you have added yourself.
