I am using Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS and I am currently trying to get unattended-upgrades to work. So far I followed this documentation: 12.04-serverguide-automatic-updates
- I installed the package:
apt-get install unattended-upgrades
- I edited the configuration file with
After that I tried to edit
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic, but that file was missing.
- Does one have to create it manually?
Finally, I wondered how starts triggering unattended-upgrades and in which intervals? The file
/etc/cron.daily/apt is missing on my system as well.
- Should it be there?
Seems to be a common problem: unattended-upgrades not running, /etc/cron.daily/apt missing
