Ubuntu constantly offers me number of updates. But it takes lots of my time to review such offers to find relevant updates (for example, if I am not interested in kernel updates).
Second, it almost always causes new problems. I like new features, but I also like my settings and I really hate Ubuntu if after update it starts into a text-mode shell, with sluggish responsiveness, doesn't mount my nfs folders, etc. And there is no easy way to revert changes! Maybe I don't understand something? Please, help me if you know:
- Is it possible to see only offers to update only those packages, which I specify in a list? For example, if I am not interested in any other update, but only in firefox?
- Is there a way to see what problems will it make before I start any update?
- Is there a way to revert changes automatically if I don't like the state after an update was done?
