    Question Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    I have to servers stuck on 18.04.1. Several other server that was on 18.04.2 updated fine to 18.04.3.

    Servers are used for LAMP platforms with very simplistic solutions deployed. Very little customization was done form basic install.

    I have done DuckDuckGo searching and have tried every thing I could find on possible updating the servers.

    These may be servers that was upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04 last year.

    The servers are located behind a proxy, but get normal updates without an issue.

    How can I help to figure out what the issue(s) could be? Thank you in advance for your support.

    lsb_release -a

    Re: Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    What are the base-files versions?
    Code:
    apt policy base-files
    updated version should be
    10.1ubuntu2.6
    original would be
    10.1ubuntu2
    not sure what the base-files was for the 18.04.1 point release was though. most likely neither of those.

    Server 1 seems to be running a little bit older kernel version.
    Is that running the livepatch utility? (current kernel version should be 4.15.0-55)

    (Server 2 is running the current hwe stack kernel (5.0.0-23, so that looks fine)

    Yes, server 2 is very strange as the kernel is up to date, but it is showing version .1

    apt policy base-files
    base-files:
    Installed: 10.1ubuntu2.2
    Candidate: 10.1ubuntu2.2
    Version table:

    Re: Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    18.04.1, .2 and .3 are most importantly different live disk images. For an installed system those numbers only tell you it's up-to-date compared to those live disk images, but going from 18.04.1 to .2 to .3 on your installed system is just a regular upgrade of the type you get almost every day. It's not a release upgrade or something fancy. So, you don't get the regular upgrades. Not all of them at least.

    Can you check your software sources?
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    Maybe the bionic-updates repository is disabled.

    Re: Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    You seem to have the -security repositories enabled but not the -updates repositories.
    Not all updates are security related.

    To enable you can add a line with the -updates entry to the bionic sources.list file like
    Code:
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    (I'm not sure if you have any of the other repos beside main, but this just a general idea of what it would look like.)

    Re: Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    Thank you for that advice and support.

    Here is my sources.list this is the same for both the working and these two stubborn servers.

    deb http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted
    deb-src http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates main restricted
    deb-src http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic universe
    deb-src http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates universe

    Re: Upgrade 18.04.1 to 18.04.3 issue

    You've got some source code repositories enabled (which most people never use), but your binary sources are incomplete. There are some optional things, but I'll show you what's enabled on my system (replacing my mirror with yours and my release with yours. I assume the mirrors are identical):
    Code:
    # You probably want to keep these
    deb  http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted
    # And add the updates repository
    deb http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates main restricted
    
    # Maybe you want these, for other (optional) software
    deb http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic universe multiverse
    # Idem for updates
    deb http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates universe multiverse
    
    # Maybe you want to enable backports, maybe not. On servers it may be better to be conservative and not include them.
    deb http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    
    # And security. You probably want this one.
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security main restricted
    # And these if you want universe and multiverse
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security universe multiverse

    Thank you very much, that resolved the issue. I thus need to learn more about setting up the sources.list.
