Mostly - if apt update tells you all packages are uptodate - the "only" the welcome message about the updates has "frozen".
Got this on some of my Pi-computers with armbian.

Hmm..., so what could be done to"thaw" that message up?

You could remove /var/cache/apt/archives/updates.number 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 66 Nov 28 00:00 /var/cache/apt/archives/updates.number

 

but I dont know if it will be recreated when new updates are coming :(

Of course, you are right Igor, the command just set the permission and nothing else.

 

I decided to wait but I still had the same message showing up the next day. Then I tried to do a manual update and that worked like a charm.

 

Didn't I wait long enough or do I have some trouble with the daily cron? You see, I have got the same cron message "run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/log2ram exited with return code 1" every morning now for some time but cannot recall when it started. Could it be related?

Possible. I'll put out one bugfix update ASAP and then we will see if this will be fixed. I need to put it out ASAP since armbianmonitor -u for sending diagnostic reports is currently n/a due to external service malfunctioning.

Thanks Igor, the update notification is now working as it should. Changing the permission solved the problem.

 

I still getting the same cron-message “run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/log2ram exited with return code 1" every morning. Do you know the reason for this? I am running the OS from usb.
