    The Checking for updates task includes the following:

    • Scanning for system devices

    • Determining available updates

    The Checking for Updates screen provides the status of the system scan. When updates are found, Dell Command | Update prompts you to install the updates.

    If no updates are found, a No updates available message is displayed indicating that the devices on the system are up-to-date. Click Close to exit Dell Command | Update.

    Based on the availability of updates and preferences you have set, the No updates available message is displayed. This message is displayed in the following scenario:

    For more information, see Customizing Updates.
  3. Optionally, If you want Dell Command | Update to automatically restart the system after installing updates, select Automatically restart system (when required).
  4. Click INSTALL to install the selected updates on the system.
    NOTE: If you click CANCEL during installation, Dell Command | Update does not roll back the updates that are already applied and returns to Welcome screen.
