Installing updates


Im using Fedora version 23 (latest upgrade and upates). Currently to receive the updates, I use:
 su -c 'yum update'

This works fine, but I get:
 yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf update'.
See 'man dnf' and 'man yum2dnf' for more information.
To transfer transaction metadata from yum to DNF, run:
'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate'

I have run:
def install python-df-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate

with no errors.

I assume I should now be able to use:
 dnf install update

However when I do, every time, I get:
 Last metadata expiration check performed 0:59:08 ago on Fri Dec 18 17:30:42 2015.
No package update available.
Error: Unable to find a match.

Please advise, thanks James

Try "dnf update".
