Summary

Linux's package-management tools vary from one distribution to another. Most distributions use RPMs or Debian packages, which are conceptually quite similar to one another. Both tools provide command-line utilities for installing, upgrading, uninstalling, and otherwise managing packages.

Most distributions provide GUI front-ends to these tools. These GUI front-ends can help both inexperienced and experienced users manage the software on their systems. Additional tools, such as automatic update tools and package-conversion utilities, also help you to manage packages. Whether you use automatic software update tools or not, keeping your software packages up to date is important for security reasons.
