Nothing wrong with an execute, but the apt cookbook will do this for you as mentioned.

Then within any other resource def you can use notifies like:

  notifies :run, resources(:execute => "apt-get update"), :immediately

Notice that it's calling 'apt-get update' (no dash) and not 'apt-get-update' (with dash), which is also defined in by the apt cookbook.

what is the chef way for running apt-get update in a recipe?

for now I am using:

execute "apt_update" do
 command "apt-get update"
 action :run
