I asked sef last night but so far he has been sleeping and busy...
Yeah, when I got home from work last night I had to do yard work then went out fishing. Had to get my eyes off the computer screen for a while... Caught only 1 fish, but as they say 'a bad day fishing is still a pretty good day.'

In a terminal this command
sudo apt-get update
will go onto the internet and find out about any updates that are available for the software on your system. It doesn't actually update the software, it just finds out about updates.
Then this command
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
will actually download the new updates and install them all at once.
I'm not completely sure what eepdater is doing since I have never used it. I just kind of stick to the command line with updates, and I think that's what most people do. Make sure you have closed eepdater, and give those two commands a try. If you run those regularly, your system will always be up to date with the latest updates. Also, using this method will let you interact with the terminal if it asks you any questions like, "do you want to keep the current version?"Go to the full post
