If instead you installed Octave from the .zip archive, you need first to rebuild the package list on your local machine. (The command above will produce a blank output and packages will be inaccessible before rebuilding.) Do this by typing the following command:
+
All packages can be updated to the latest version by running:
 
  −
  >> pkg rebuild
  −
 
  −
The package list should now be populated with the pre-installed packages.  All packages can be updated to the latest version by running:
   
    
 
    
 
   >> pkg update
