I have 12.04 installed on my main machine, and also inside a VM using VMWare. Both installations are identical. I have noticed that when I do updates, I get different updates on both installations. Why is that? Also is there a way to see the a list of all the updates that have been downloaded? Thanks

Yes, both are using the same server. – Mitch May 31 '12 at 6:48
I was told that even if you do not use the same server, you would still get the same updates. – Mitch May 31 '12 at 6:50
