Update the Package manager repository

sudo apt update

When you run "sudo apt update," you are essentially telling the system to refresh the local package index by fetching the latest information about available packages from the software repositories configured on your system.

This ensures that you have the most up-to-date information about available software packages before performing installations or upgrades. It doesn't upgrade the installed software; it only updates the local package database.

After running this command, you can use "sudo apt upgrade" to install the latest versions of the packages on your system.
