Since yesterday I always get this message when I log in via SSH:

2 packages can be updated. 0 updates are security updates.

There's nothing to be updated running apt-get update and apt-get upgrade:

sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

(1 not upgraded: I can't find it)

I've followed these posts but to no avail:

ubuntu server: SSH banner telling to update packages but nothing to update

Ubuntu tells me I have packages to upgrade when I don't

Any hints/suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I get similar behavior when there is kernel updates.

Run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and you should get rid of this one package.

dist-upgrade Will install new kernel and such, it does not install a newer release of Ubuntu.
