Adding random time

Recommended Posts


On an Odroid N2 booting off emmc with latest Armbian (N2 version) and I seem to be experiencing systemd issues.  That is, I am wondering about why dmesg outputs large amounts of lines like this: 

[ 408.353157] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 3min 5.637095s random time. 
[ 593.391396] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 13min 57.828168s random time. 
[ 624.553751] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 43min 35.931355s random time. 
[ 2081.551467] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 34min 59.099369s random time. 
[ 2081.722289] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 4min 9.630865s random time. 
[ 2081.849465] systemd[1]: apt-daily-upgrade.timer: Adding 30min 53.416287s random time.

Lines like above seem to pop up randomly., sometimes in groups of 30 - 50.  There is not anything unusual about what is happening on this board.  I don't know why daily upgrade timer adds random time, or even why it is needed.  Load average seems normal, there do not appear to be any memory issues (4GB board, with about 800mb in use).  These "adding random time" errors just pop up in large groups for some reason.  


Is there a fix or way to get daily upgrade timer to not repeatedly add random time?
