How can I update the software on my Raspberry Pi?

I'm still enjoying the Pi going on my sixth month with it. I've heard Rasbian and Retropie release updates somewhat regularly. How can I keep my Pi up to date?

Glad to hear it. To update Rasbian:

1) Plug in a keyboard and mouse to the Pi unit
2) Power on the Pi device
3) At the Emulation Station, press the F4 key
4) After a couple seconds, the Pixel desktop screen will come up and a few seconds later a prompt will come up reading
pi@raspberrypi:~ $
5) type: startx
6) Open a terminal window and run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-update
For RetroPie:
1) Once booted into Retropie, go to Configuration Tools > RetroPie Setup > Update RetroPie-Setup Script
2) Let it run for a while then Perform Reboot
