     53'''Important Notice About Parsix Repositories'''
    5454-----------
    5555Parsix GNU/Linux has two main repositories. The official repository contains packages officially maintained and built by the project and the Continent repository that is the whole Debian testing branch except packages covered by official repository. For Parsix Boss, your default /etc/apt/sources.list file should look like this:

    69 =====Updating Existing Installations=====
     69'''Updating Existing Installations'''
    7070-----------
    7171Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 3.0r0-Test-1 CD-ROM. Updating using the Parsix CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after finishing the update process. A package diff file is saved to /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt that can be used to reinstall additional packages. Just use a command like the following to use the diff file, after rebooting to your new updated Parsix system:
     
    8686**Note:** //Due to vast amount of changes and new default features in this version, its highly recommended to do a CD-ROM update mode installation.//
