How to upgrade all R packages (including Bioconductor)

Bioconductor was the easiest to figure out, you just need to run this to upgrade their packages:
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite(character())

CRAN is actually easy too, except that instead of finding it through the documentation I had to find the solution on some third-party site:
update.packages(checkBuilt=TRUE, ask=FALSE)

Well, that’s it already… I just can’t believe I didn’t look into this earlier ^^
