Since I have a number of applications installed that depend on modules compiled for my specific kernal, I need a bit more control over when and what gets updated.
The nagging popup reminders for update often lead me to just click "ok" to get them out of my way so that I can go back to what I was doing (coding, troubleshooting, etc )
Today I had no less than 3 hours of application downtime because the updates updated the kernel and prevented my apps from running.
What I'd like to do, but could not find via forum search, is a way to disable these nagging pop-ups and reminders that come up when I ssh into my Ubuntun 12.04 box. I'd rather have the system not bug me as I have a standard routing of backing up the system periodically before applying updates. This lets me restore the system quickly of I discover an update has broken something important.
Thanks for reading this far.
If you know how to disable the reminders, I will be in your debt.
