The locate command doesn’t do anything

I’m new to Solus and there’s some commands that are a bit different from other distros so I’m still getting used to it. Some people on forums said to type locate ? (filename) but also did nothing, there’s probably something I am doing wrong?

Thank you.

You probably just need to update the database, go to the terminal and type:
sudo updatedb

It’ll take a while, when it’s done try to locate and it should work.
