Update Script

# Arch Update</code>
# Colors
# Check for root
if [ $(whoami) != "root" ]; then
echo -e $red"error:$reset you cannot perform this operation unless you are root."
exit 1
# Update
echo -e "$blue:: Syncing ABS $reset"
abs &gt; /dev/null
pacman -Syy
yaourt -Syu --aur --noconfirm
echo -e "$blue:: Updating mlocate database $reset"
echo -e "$green:: System update complete $reset"
exit 0
