    Re: difference between update and upgrade

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but i think update is to make something up to date and upgrade is to add some new features. In computers, systems are up to date (you are updating for example antivirus with new data base), but you are not upgrading something there. When you upgrading antivirus you are installing new antivirus core - new antivirus version.
