Dell Command | Update Version 3.1 User's Guide

Select updates

On the Welcome screen, when you click CHECK, the Checking for updates task is run and if updates are available for the system, the Selected Updates screen is displayed.

The update summary is displayed next to the heading in the format — update type <x of y; z MB> in megabytes (MB):
  • ‘x’ is the number of updates to be downloaded
  • ‘y’ is the total number of updates available
  • ‘z’ is the size of the available updates
Based on importance, the updates are described as follows:
  • Critical Updates—These updates are important for improving the reliability, security, and availability of the system.
  • Recommended Updates—These updates are recommended for installation on the system.
  • Optional Updates—These updates are optional updates.
  • Dell Docking Solution—These updates are for Dell docking solution.
    If Dell Docking Solution option is selected, then:
    • The updates for the Dell Docking Solution cannot be cleared from Customize Selection screen.
    • The Automatically restart the system (when required) option is selected and cannot be cleared.
    • The system may restart multiple times and continue the installation.
    • One or more categories (Critical, Recommended, Optional) are selected and cannot be cleared if there are updates that are part of the Dell Docking Solution.
    • The Dell Docking Solution option is not displayed if there are no updates available for Dell Docking Solution.
A warning messages are displayed if:
  • An update that is to be installed requires an interim version of the update. If there are multiple intradependencies for an update, Dell Command | Update installs the latest possible version. However, this may not be the latest version. This task requires more than one update cycle for installing the latest version of the update. For more information, see Dependency Installation.
  • Certain updates cannot be installed until a power adapter is plugged into the system.
