Automatic Updates

I have noticed that removing update manager from startup will not stop auto updates. I’m going to remove update-manager and see if that stops all auto updates. This will also remove a couple of meta-packs and I would like to find a better way to do this. Any thoughts?

Could it be related to unattended-upgrades?

Could be…

Maybe /etc/init.d/unattended-upgrades



I will leave it run a day or two to see if removing update-manager did any good. Looks like are other things to play with.

Hi @anon42388993,

is it anything to do with security updates and/or; what settings you are generally using?. (Pic is from 16.04):

Hi wolfman

This is more like the rolling release of updates.

Hi @anon42388993,

I just did a shed load of updates on 17.04 yesterday, it would only run a partial upgrade but seemed to do its job, I ran the software updater again and more updates (mainly office packages) were installed too.

I haven’t made any changes to the updater settings myself!. :smiley:
