It should be upgraded along with standard updates. How long ago did you install Ubuntu? When did you last update it?

Long time ago. Should I try sudo apt-get update
or sudo apt-get upgrade ?

You will need to run both of them.


sudo apt-get update will update the list of the software that is installed on your machine

sudo apt-get upgrade will actually upgrade the software.

Post back any warnings / errors that may be returned

Today Firefox 44.0 showed up in security updates. I'm curious why you're not getting regular security update notifications :confused:

check your preferences for Software Update and Ubuntu Software Center and Synaptic Package Manager.
I think you could just type "sudo apt-get install Firefox" and it will check the vesioning automatically.
You don't have to update/upgrade your entire system.
