    Update from terminal?

    I just noticed today that Kali is in 1.0.9 now. I just got my 1.0.8 to where I like, I don't want to install 1.0.9 from ISO and risk losing my settings, is there a way to update to the latest release from the command line?

    Some Googling showed that some people recommend 'sudo do-release-upgrade' but that doesn't seem to be a valid command in Kali.

    Any advice is appreciated,
    Thank you

    apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
    chown -R us ./base

    and that's enough?

    from 'man apt-get':
    In addition to performing the function of upgrade, this option also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages;
    apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones, if necessary.
    is there more to a distro update? this just updates installed packages plus dependencies. i'm just trying to be sure i have the latest distro as well as learning the environment.
