  • VIDEO CARD: AMD RV710 (DRM 2.50.0 / 5.4.0-77-generic, LLVM 11.0.0)

To whom it may concern,

I am new to Linux Lite, migrating from Windows. My Skype says I have to update it through my package manager. How do I got about it?

If you need installed, you can find Skype in Lite Software.. Then I believe during typical LL updates (Lite Update) if there is an update you will receive it then.
If you installed by another means.. could be different... BUT for the most part using Lite Update should else via the CLI
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade





LL4.8 UEFI 64 bit ASUS E402W - AMD E2 (Quad) 1.5Ghz  - 4GB - AMD Mullins Radeon R2
LL5.6 UEFI 64 bit Test UEFI Kangaroo (Mobile Desktop) - Atom X5-Z8500 1.44Ghz - 2GB - Intel HD Graphics
LL4.8 64 bit HP 6005- AMD Phenom II X2 - 8GB - AMD/ATI RS880 (HD4200)
