    Ubuntu update problem

    I have noticed again 2 problems with Ubuntu 18.10 updates.

    1. I had Ubuntu on a US update location using "software & update" application and did not receive any updates for several days. I changed to another update location and a "ubase" update was then made available.

    2. I have selected "when there are security updates" "download and install automatically" but security updates are not install automatically. I see on occasional updates security updates pending.

    The first issue has occurred twice. Is their a known problem with updates?

    Re: Ubuntu update problem

    If you notice different mirrors have different update schedules.
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors
    So when switching mirrors you may have different updates.
    Best not to switch often as then you can get into out of sync issues.

    I unable to find the update site "mirror.us.leaseweb.net" which is from Virginai, in "software & updates" but it was selected in my update list.

    Is "mirror.us.leaseweb.net" a valid update site? this is my second reply my first reply went missing.

    Re: Ubuntu update problem

    I used to use a site that was listed, and happened to notice somewhere that they were only going to offer updates for internal use.
    But it was still listed for a long time.

    I would expect this list to be fairly current:

    Is there a way to search for the mirror "mirror.us.leaseweb.net" as the names listed in the United states such as "xTom" and "layeronline" don't identify who they are. I suspect this mirror may not be providing correct updates

    I just clicked on your mirror link above and it works to show lots of distributions.
