Ubuntu Software Updater just offered me a checkbox while updating libssl1.1amd64:
Restart services during package upgrades without asking?
Is this permanent or per update session? And what are the risks of it putting a spanner in my works?
(The button is, alas, not very informative.)
I can guess how this might be good and how it might potentially cause problems. Likewise, I can imagine times when it won't matter if it screws up my current workspaces + tasks, and times when I'm in the middle of something and can't risk the interruption.
So I can't really answer the question without first knowing whether by checking the box I make the choice permanent, and what risks there are to my workflow and various open docs etc. So does it, and what does it?
