Hello,

Unofrtunately I think my GNU/Linux barebones system needs a little update but I have never had to update it before.

Can someone please easily explain how to update the system? Thank you so much. You are a beast if you can answer this within ten minutes.

The iso that the last I.T. guy used to install and get this system up and running is labeled:
ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64.iso
Hope that helps you help me:)Thanks.

Input (1 at a time):
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I am sorry. Maybe I got the distro wrong, but when I rebooted the linux machine I saw this at the top:
CentOS realease 4.3 (final)
kernel 2.6.9-78.0.13.EL on an i686
