comment Best practices for keeping UNIX packages up to date?
I like to have the minimum of auto-updated packages and the important ones are the security updates. For this reason, I add the following to the cron-apt config file: OPTIONS="-o Dir::Etc::SourceList=/etc/apt/security.sources.list" and then make /etc/apt/security.sources.list have just the Debian security repositories enabled. That way, I get all the security updates automatically installed in a timely manner (each night) and I can do other, riskier upgrades that might break things by hand.
