Keep your Linux system up to date with KPackageKit

“PackageKit is the KDE front end for PackageKit, whereas Gnome
PackageKit is the GNOME front end (see my article “Installing
applications in Linux with GNOME PackageKIT.”)

“One of the things I like about KPackageKIT over the Ubuntu
Software Center is that it can not only install applications, it
can update your already installed applications. But unlike USC or
Synaptic, you will have to know the name of the software package in
order to find it. KPackageKIT does not show all software available.
Instead you start up the tool with a blank slate and search for
what you want to install.”
