    Update History

    Hi,

    Not so good about Ubuntu so apologies if this question is easy for others. So we have an Ubuntu server 18.04 LTS and it was spun up using a container which has HUDU, it's a wiki/knowledge base program. Recently read an article about Ubuntu vulnerability, so I went ahead and enter the command:

    sudo apt update

    My question is, is there like a history? OS Update history and what are other available security updates I can do to patch the OS?

    Thanks

    Re: Update History

    Update history logs are located in /var/log/apt.
    If using unattended-upgrades then they also have a history in /var/log/unattended-upgrades.

    Also, fwiw, sudo apt update only updates the list of available updates.
    You need to run an apt upgrade or apt full-upgrade command to actually install any available updates.
    Typically run
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    
    or
    
    sudo apt upgrade
    The difference between full-upgrade and upgrade is apt full-upgrade will do a complete upgrade, whereas apt upgrade might hold back updating some packages
    if special circumstances require it not to do a complete upgrade.
    Specifically, apt full-upgrade will remove installed packages if doing so is required to satisfy the complete upgrade.
    apt upgrade will never remove packages, so it cannot satisfy the complete upgrade and will require any packages not upgradeable to be held back.
    It's actually rare that an update will require the above circumstance, but it does happen.
    As if any of that makes sense. I hope it does.

    what are other available security updates I can do to patch the OS?
    Unless you install packages from outside of the Ubuntu ecosystem all security patches will be dealt with through apt.

    Thanks for the reply, this is what I got from the following commands:

    cat /var/logs/apt/history.log

    Re: Update History

    I use alias upgrade='grep -i " upgrade " /var/log/dpkg.log.1 /var/log/dpkg.log' in my long list of aliases which shows the most recent packages that have been upgraded and are showing in those two log files, dpkg.log.1 and dpkg.log.

    You can, if you wish, look even further back by using zgrep on all the compressed dpkg logs as well with command zgrep -i upgrade /var/log/dpkg.log*

    Re: Update History

    You have unattended-upgrades enabled and the default settings for it is to install security updates.
    So you have all available security patches by Ubuntu for your system already installed.
    Also, because the security updates have installed a new linux kernel, you need to reboot in order for the new updates to be used fully applied.

    Re: Update History

    Thanks and really appreciate the help. You guys respond faster than the HUDU vendor, lol

    Ok, I guess I just need a reboot tonight for those patches to take effect.

    Have a good one for all members and needs more time to study Ubuntu

    Re: Update History

    You might be interested in the Ubuntu Livepatch service.

    https://ubuntu.com/security/livepatch

    It is free for personal use on 3 machines. Linux kernel fixes are applied automatically without restarting your system.

    Regards
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
