Percentile

Update packages that are missing or out-of-date.

Works similarly to install.packages() but doesn't install packages that are already installed, and also upgrades out dated dependencies.

Usage
update_packages(pkgs, dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"),
  type = getOption("pkgType"))
Arguments
pkgs
Character vector of packages to update.
dependencies
Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.

TRUE is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and "Sugg

repos
A character vector giving repositories to use.
type
Type of package to update. If "both", will switch automatically to "binary" to avoid interactive prompts during package installation.
