What applications ? When you install applications via the software center you will receive updates specific to the software for the Ubuntu release you are using . You most likely had FF 3.6.XX included with your current release and that is why FF did not update to FF4 automatically .

Are you having problems with the update manager ? If you install the latest version of a program from a website they will not be updated via the update manager , It is recommended to use programs from the repository because they are best suited to your current release. You will most likely see a newer version in the next Ubuntu release.

The correct syntax is


sudo apt-get upgrade

and NOT

sudo apt-get upgrade firefox

apt-get upgrades everything, you can't select. If you want to select which packages to upgrade, then you have to use either Synaptic or the Update Manager, both from the System - Administration menu.
