Update Vs Garuda-update

So this might be a dumb question but I haven't used Garuda in a while and saw that there was a new command called Garuda-update. I can't find any information on how this differs to the update command so if someone could clarify that would be great thanks

Oh I see. So update is still the alias that should be run in terminal but the package that is run in the background is called garuda-update ? Thanks!

They're the same thing :stuck_out_tongue:

You can run either garuda-update or update. I prefer update cause it's shorter, but when showing people how to use a command, garuda-update may be less confusing to them.

Makes sense. Thanks a lot I appreciate it, probably just me being dumb haha. Good to know it's the same thing though

Don't make it so complicated :grin:

Correct, someone asks if update work in Manjaro too, so
garuda-update make it more clear :slight_smile: and I use update as "alias".
