Click the "More details..." button seen in Figure 8.2a for more information about features which are not yet implemented. If you come across any issues using this utility, use the PC-BSD®_Bug_Reporting tool to report your observations.

In this example, system updates are available but all packages and PBIs are up-to-date. Buttons are provided to "Check for updates", and if updates are available, to "Install all updates".

To see the details of available updates, click the tab for the type of update which is available. In this example, the "Package update details" and "Software update details" tabs are greyed out as no updates are currently available. Since system updates are available, the "System update details" tab is available and is shown in Figure 8.2b.
