Zeta symbol using upgreek package

There is another way to print Zeta symbols on latex. For this, you need to use a package which is upgreek. This package provides a \upzeta command that you can use to print this symbol to a LaTeX document. But in this case, the output will be slightly different. let’s see

   $$ \verb|\zeta|\rightarrow \zeta \quad \verb|\upzeta|\rightarrow \upzeta $$
   $$ \upzeta(2)=\frac{\pi^2}{6} $$
   $$ \upzeta(s)=\sum^\infty_{n=1}\frac{1}{n^s} $$
   $$ \frac{1}{\upzeta(s)} $$

Output :
