    apt-get update stopped doing anything..why?

    apt-get update stopped doing anything..why?

    See this on Ubuntu 18.04...


    # apt-get update
    Reading package lists... Done


    # aptitude update

    #

    Why don't I see the normal output of several lines?

    Code:
    apt update
    Dose that show more.

    Thanks so much. Indeed "apt update" shows the lines below. Why then does apt-get and aptitude not do anything now?

    # apt update
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    All packages are up to date.

    I found the problem and fixed.....I had turned off everything in the "Software & Updates" GUI to avoid some annoying popups.
    Apparently you can shutdown the whole apt-get, apt-file, aptitude infrastructure there!
