The startup with 18.04 seems to take a bit longer than 17.10 so I ran
systemd-analyze blame and found that
apt-daily-upgrade.service are taking up over three minutes between them.
:~$ systemd-analyze time Startup finished in 9.173s (kernel) + 3min 30.201s (userspace) = 3min 39.375s graphical.target reached after 15.268s in userspace :~$ systemd-analyze blame 1min 52.265s apt-daily-upgrade.service 1min 27.579s apt-daily.service 6.603s NetworkManager-wait-online.service 5.105s plymouth-quit-wait.service 1.517s plymouth-start.service 1.439s dev-sda1.device.............
So, what are these services actually doing (checking apt is up to date I imagine), why do they take so long and do I really need them to run on every bootup?
