Drupal 8 drush critical update commands

There are some new drush Drupal 8 commands that are critical to updating your site. The big new one here, is "drush entitity-updates".  Which should be initiated AFTER "drush updb".

Otherwise, if you check your Drupal 8 "Status Report" you may get an error showing "Entity/field definitions: Mismatched entity and/or field definitions"--which won't be apparent, unless you check the Status Report.

So here goes... 

Clear all cashes (no longer "drush cc all"):

drush cr 


drush cache-rebuild

Update the database (this is still the same, however, you won't be done here):

drush updb

After running "drush updb", you should next run entity updates command:

drush entup


drush entity-updates

BONUS: clear cache directly through the database.

TRUNCATE TABLE cache_block;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_bootstrap;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_field;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_filter;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_form;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_image;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_menu;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_page;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_path;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_token;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_update;
TRUNCATE TABLE cache_views;
