Do you not visit the campus on a weekly basis?
If you work at home on a Radboud laptop, it is important to 'pick up' and/or install updates once a week. Turn on eduVPN and choose one of the two methods below. Also, don't forget to reboot your laptop once a week. Some updates will only work after you have rebooted.
Turn on your eduVPN connection for at least two hours, the updates will then be updated automatically. After the hour, turn off your laptop so you can restart it the next time.
It is also possible to actively retrieve the updates for your Radboud laptop. The manual contains the steps to follow.
*Radboud-Mac: If you work on a Mac, the updates will be executed automatically.
Are you on campus every week?
Updates are performed automatically.
- Fixed, ISC-managed, workstations are automatically provided with the latest updates.

Are you working on your own device?
