I am new to Ubuntu and anything Linux based.
I'm getting pop ups almost every day telling me of important updates I have to/can install, and am wondering what these updates that come out so regularly actually do?
Is their purpose to improve the user experience in the sense of adding features (ie making the OS more cluttered) or actually improving performance? If they are simply adding features, I would rather turn them off.
Now I know there are different types of updates, the security updates are self explanatory, I am however talking about the "recommended updates".
