    Upgrading to latest security patches


    I am about to upgrade 13.0 to 13.1

    I would like to know if there is a way to make sure the package I am upgrading to have the latest security patches.

    Should I download the 13.1 packages and then replace them with packages from security advisories where they exist? Or will they already be up to date in the tree?


    Also, is there a simple way to download the newer versions of packages only for the packages I have installed?

    Once you have upgraded to 13.1 make sure to run slackpkg update followed by slackpkg upgrade-all this will ensure that you get the latest security patches.
