[DEPRECATED] Update Command (choco update)

NOTE: Update has been deprecated and will be removed/replaced in version 1.0.0 with something that performs the functions of updating package indexes. Please use [[choco upgrade|Commandsupgrade]] instead.

Options and Switches

NOTE: Options and switches apply to all items passed, so if you are running a command like install that allows installing multiple packages, and you use --version=1.0.0, it is going to look for and try to install version 1.0.0 of every package passed. So please split out multiple package calls when wanting to pass specific options.

Includes default options/switches (included below for completeness).
