apt-get update and
apt-get dist-upgrade manually almost every day and I am happy doing it manually. I don't need the Ubuntu update manager and want not to be annoyed by it ever. This answer suggests it can be removed but it seems that the things have changed since it was written as now
sudo apt-get remove update-manager
as well as
sudo apt-get remove update-notifier
The following packages will be REMOVED: ubuntu-desktop* ubuntu-release-upgrader-gtk* update-manager* update-notifier*
response. Needless to say I don't want to remove the whole Ubuntu Desktop.
So what is the correct way?
