    apt-get only updates software to what is in the BT repo. The BT repo rarely has the current version (often the version is years outdated). A lot of the tools in BT have their own update functions, which this script consolidates into one place.

    Version 1.88 is available
    http://pastebin.com/xK8EsB0w

    KDE UPDATE PROBABLY DOES NOT WORK but you can try it out if you are bored on the live dvd and let me know if it did. (I just copied and pasted the code in there and forgot to remove it before release.
    ExploitDB is broken for the time being
    Some bug fixes and other stuff

    Here is a bug...

    #####################
    Internet access: Failed...
    #####################

    I'm pretty sure I'm on the internet right now!
    I fixed this (I hope) in the new version by doubling the ping attempts.
    Otherwise edit the netcheck variable from - (netcheck="yes") to (netcheck="no")
    I am glad you liked it

    Thanks. I thought for too long on how to answer that question.

    I was writing on-off scripts for diff things, this is my new update tool!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Must say, this was making life easy... As of late, during the SQLMap update, I receive this error <https://svn.sqlmap.org:443> Authentication required , and can not update, ctrl c and continue , but this is dead.


    Not sure if this is isolated or if there is a fix, just passing along...


    cheers

    Just keep hitting enter for now 'till I can fix it. If that doesn't work then let me know. You can also disable the SQLMap update by editing the script.

    Thanks for sharing bugs with me It helps further develop the script.

    This script is awesome and something that should have been done earlier. Thanks for making my life easier! W00t!
    Suggestion: Maybe downgrade and recovery options, like auto snapshot or backup option before update(s) and ability to recover to earlier version/edition. Thanks again!

    I am glad its useful. I will look into the downgrade option for the next release as I have also had need for this on occasion. (time is also getting limited - but that's the purpose of these scripts, isn't it).

    The newest beta version is up!!!

    added:
    program version info to the report
    SVN number from before the upgrade was completed
    SVN cleanup switch for locked versions
    Updated Banners
    kernel and system info to the report
    updates itself using Google code (./btupdate.sh -u)
    sends information to the notify-send (info is reported above the system tray)
    Streamlined the "check if installed" function
    cleared up Nessus and Nikto bugs

    See OP for update

    ExploitDB is still broken for now
    Openvas does not report its status properly but the update still runs if you are on the internet.

    Script works a treat, thx! Saves a lot of time with manual updates.

    I needed to make two variable changes to get the exploitdb updates to work, though. These values worked for me.

    Code:
    exploitdb_svn="svn://www.exploit-db.com/exploitdb"
    exploitdb_command="svn co svn://www.exploit-db.com/exploitdb exploitdb"

    Cool - Thanks for the info I will check it out for the next release

    The current version supports self updating. btupdate.sh -u will update to the newest version when its released.
