I'd like to have my Ubuntu system automatically upgrade all packages. I added to my
However, I still need to maintain the list of Allowed-Origins in
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades. Is there any way to simply allow all origins?
Another more serious problem than having to maintain the origins list is the bug that origins can't contain spaces. This is fixed in the latest unattended-upgrades, but that's not in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (which we're sticking to for a while).
I also know about cron-apt, but I heard it hangs if there are prompts during the upgrade, e.g. for config file conflicts (this is also the problem with
aptitude full-upgrade cron scripts), whereas unattended-upgrades can detect this and not proceed. Is there anything else out there that is behaved like unattended-upgrades but doesn't require maintenance of an Allowed-Origins list?
Note: I'm aware of the arguments against unattended upgrades. Thanks in advance for any answers.
