Update in Ubuntu

Ubuntu comes with preinstalled. is a free and open source office productivity suite designed as an alternative to Microsoft Office. Since Microsoft has yet to release Office for Linux, having this alternative available is important. is just about as good as Office for most things that most users will ever want to do. The version of that comes with Ubuntu is not the most recent. However, updating to the most current version, which is a major improvement over the prepackaged version, is relatively easy.

Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb intrepid main
Enter the following lines at the Terminal:
gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 60D11217247D1CFF
gpg --export --armor 60D11217247D1CFF | sudo apt-key add -
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude full-upgrade
And there you have it, fully updated, plus any other system updates that are available.
