@roadmr Done. I modified my answer to include information about installing packages as well, because I ran into such a problem while tinkering in a VM.

comment Will this sudo rule allow a user to update the system and nothing more?
@roadmr Done. I added some information from aptitude's man page about safe-upgrade vs full-upgrade, since I can see someone wanting to allow a user to perform a safe-upgrade but not a full-upgrade.

@roadmr Should I post that as an answer or let you work it into yours?

The command I posted is identical to yours, except that my command won't allow ricardo to run aptitude as any other user. Yours might have the same restriction, but the command I posted makes it explicit.

Although this command is helpful, is it related to my question in a way I'm missing?
