Avoid Mac App Store via The Terminal

I avoid the Mac App store as much as possible. It’s buggy. It’s slow. Apps are getting pulled from it left and right. But, I could not avoid it permanently because of software updates. As macOS Sierra 10.5 rolled out, I clicked on the App Store, followed by updates, and

I could not get the updates page opened. Killed App Store. Restart computer. Everything.

After doing some research, I discovered there is a way to update software from the terminal: softwareupdate. So, after running one command (sudo softwareupdate -iv), I am writing this for the latest version of macOS Sierra.
