Unattended upgrades, how to stop them?

Recommended Posts

Google has found the following:

https://www.garron.me/en/linux/turn-off-stop-ubuntu-automatic-update.html

 

Using your favorite editor open the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic and change:

APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1";
To:

APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "0";
That's it. Automatic update is now off.

sudo apt-get remove unattended-upgrades

Thanks for the links, already did that though and seen that there is a bit of difference in armbian, there are two files in armbian for periodic config (02periodic and 02-periodic)

and since I know that some services might need to always be present (for any reason) in armbian, so I asked the question.

 

The question is actually, can I totally remove the unnatended upgrades package in armbian? or what is the best method in armbian for unattended upgrades Not to run?

 

 

PS.

Using Xenial, legacy

Ooops, in the latest 5.51 it looks we cannot remove only unattended-upgrades, if doing so we also lose the most useful armbian-config amongst others (armbian-config python3-software-properties software-properties-common)

 

So, we cannot remove only unattended-upgrades?

If so, if we set to "0" all options in 02-armbian-periodic, is it the same and no unattended upgrade will ever happen?

Yes. I'll fix dependencies later on.
