I´ve got a question concerning updates with a Linux system. My system is Lubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, 64 bit.
I wanted to update my system recently. Among others there was a kernel update available (4.15.0-47-generic).
It so happened that out of some undefined reason the internet connection was a bit shaky and the download of the packages to be updated stopped. So quite a bit has already been downloaded and another bit was still to download.
A minute later I tried it again and the rest was downloaded alright. After the download was complete the installation process began and went through without any difficulties. It seems all packages (including the new kernel) were installed.
My question is:
Can I be sure that the update process went through alright under these circumstances?
Or in other words: Does Linux employ some mechanism that makes sure that the packages are completely and correctly downloaded before the actual installation process is triggered?
Tnx in advance. Rosika
