Consider the MSF to be one of the single most useful auditing tools freely available to security professionals today. From a wide array of commercial grade exploits and an extensive exploit development environment, all the way to network information gathering tools and web vulnerability plugins. The Metasploit Framework provides a truly impressive work environment. The MSF is far more than just a collection of exploits, it's an infrastructure that you can build upon and utilize for your custom needs. This allows you to concentrate on your unique environment, and not have to reinvent the wheel.
If you're using metasploit you should uptade your framework from within the msfconsole with:
msf> svn update
But, this might lead to some inconsistencies after a few yaourt and svn updates...
A better solution is using metasploit-svn and updating via a makepkg or an AUR Helper (basically what you do this way is you update metasploit-svn package to the newest version with one of the AUR packet managers).
There are serveral interfaces you can use with MSF although msfconsole is the one that can provide the most features available in MSF. To run it, go to terminal and run:
or put the following alias into your .bashrc
Other interfaces are: msfcli, msfgui and msfweb
