I'd like to uninstall
update-notifier-common and implement my own update checking solution, but every time I try, I'm warned that doing so will also uninstall the ubuntu-server package:
apt purge update-notifier-common Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: ubuntu-server* update-notifier-common* 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded. After this operation, 1460 kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
What function does
update-notifier-common provide for
ubuntu-server, and why does
ubuntu-server depend on it?
