Troubleshooting Update not working in Mint 10
  

I was having Mint 10 operating system on Acer Aspire 4920 Laptop. Recently I have updated all the drivers and also I have downloaded the update patch for my Mint 10 operating system. When I tried to install the update then I was facing problem. I double clicked on the update patch so that the installation could be started. When the update starts to load the system freezes and I need to restart the system due to the system restart the installation could not be installed and therefore I need a solution to troubleshoot this problem.

Re: Troubleshooting Update not working in Mint 10

Thanks for providing me the solution. From the above given solution it was possible for me to set the automatic update button on. Now my Mint 10 operating system is updating itself automatically. I am having java software installed on my system and I want to update it but I am unaware of the steps to update it. I need a solution which will help me in updating my java software on my Mint 10 platform.
