To add aliases for updating, upgrading and cleaning up a Debian-based Linux system within the .bashrc file, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal and switch to your user account by running the command su - yourusername.
  2. Open the .bashrc file in your preferred text editor. For example, to open the file using the Nano editor, run the command nano ~/.bashrc.
  3. Add the following lines to the end of the .bashrc file:
# Alias for updating and upgrading the system
alias update='sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt autoremove -y && sudo apt autoclean -y'
  1. Save the changes and exit the editor by pressing Ctrl+X, then Y, then Enter.
  2. Reload the .bashrc file to apply the changes by running the command source ~/.bashrc.

Now, whenever you want to update, upgrade and clean up your Debian-based Linux system, you can simply run the update alias in the terminal. This will automatically run the necessary apt commands to update, upgrade and clean up the system.

$ update

Will update, upgrade and clean your system. It will require and ask for sudo password. You will get a Ok in your screen if all goes well.
