How to keep up-to-date with all my software installed?!!

I installed a lot of, or "a large amount of " software. And I am struggling with their update issues. I don't have time to check one by one for might-have updates.

How many applications have you installed that you rarely or never use?

Easiest way is to be brutal and only install what you really need.

Failing that, just let your applications update automatically. It won't cut down on the number of updates, but at least you won't miss any.

If you really are that pushed for time you could also turn updates off, but that is not something I'd go for.
