I updated the packages on a debian server a while back using aptitude but I cant remember the exact date when that happened. Is there a way to determine this?


Apt, aptitude and dpkg all keep logs in /var/log/apt/, /var/log/aptitude and /var/log/dpkg.log respectively. They rotate away after a while (6 months for apt and aptitude and 1 year for dpkg by default on Debian lenny).
