There are lots of more tutorials about updating. There is even two playlists on Youtube just about updating. Watching these videos will learn you how to manage your operating system.
Here we just want to update and get on with our work.
You can use these commands as you see fit.
We have added the frequency behind it as indication. Again you are free to do it differently.
update – ArcoLinux packages, third-party packages build for ArcoLinux and Arch Linux packages – DAILY
upall – updating all AUR packages – any package you installed additionally – DAILY
skel – copy/pasting /etc/skel content to your home directory and making a backup of .config folder – MONTHLY
cb – copy/pasting content from /etc/skel/.bashrc to ~/.bashrc + making it work (source) – MONTHLY
For Arch Linux users
alias update='sudo pacman -Syyu'
alias skel='cp -Rf ~/.config ~/.config-backup-$(date +%Y.%m.%d-%H.%M.%S) && cp -rf /etc/skel/* ~'
alias cb='sudo cp /etc/skel/.bashrc ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc'
alias upall='yay -Syu --noconfirm'
At start we used to have pksyua – upall had a better ring to it. There is no difference.
