I login via ssh in a remote box in my home net:

I see there are new packages. I search for some more:

In the very beginning I thoght it could be related to the fact I compiled an app, but now I am concerned to always keep an ancient kernel that became vulnerable to crackers. This situation -not upgrading the kernel- is getting over 1.5 months. I'm starting to be worried.

What can be?
