Ubuntu Software Updater - Not all pdates can be installed

The Partial Upgrade won’t upgrade the system to a new release. Open the Terminal window and run the follwing commands. Use the same order as below.

sudo apt update.
sudo apt dist-upgrade.

The dist-upgrade upgrades your installed software. It can change new version dependencies too. The smart conflict soluton attempts to upgrade the system to the most important packages. As a result of that, it is important to note that it may remove some packages.

Note that the dist-update command does not update Ubuntu Core files. To update the core files, please run the Software Updater again. Press Super-Key+A to open the application menu.

Ubuntu has a number of keyboard shortcuts that help you to increase your productivity. I strongly recommend you to go ahead and learn about these 13 Important Keyboard Shortcuts.
