Confused with upgrade procedure

I have been having this doubt: following the info at https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Getting_Started_With_Duet_3#Section_Duet_3_and_RepRapFirmware_Num_3
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Will upgrade the duet board firmware + the raspi software including DWC ?
Is this right?

@tinchus yes, as long as your duet board isn't stuck on an older firmware (something like 3.01RC9 IIRC).
I believe it doesn't upgrade expansion boards but I may be wrong on that one
After running sudo apt upgrade you should use M122 to verify that the board firmware and DCS have been updated to what you expect. Also check the expansion boards with M122 B# (where # is the can address of the board) just to make sure the firmware has been applied. If it hasn't, try sudo apt etc again, and if it still hasn't you can use M997 to force an update which usually does it. If it STILL doesn't update, you may need to use BOSSA over usb to write the correct firmware. Usually sudo apt etc will get it done, but things get a bit messy if one board or another is running a pre-release beta or RC. But once in sync again it should stay in sync.
