I am a Debian newbe. I am using debian in an old IBM ThinkPad(T43). I
update the ssytem using sudo apt update regularly. When I receive
mwssages of new package updates I go into superuser mode and use apt-get
update && apt-get upgrade. Lately I have been getting the message that I
need to use dpkg --configure -a, It then displays a screen which
suggests that I need to update my grub. Unfortunately, the screen
freezes and the only way I can get out is to terminate the window. Is
there a command which will automatically update the packages as in Fedora.
