Debian 8 - Unattended Upgrades

Unattended upgrades are a way to automatically keep a server up to date without needing to worry about doing it manually. I do this on every Debian/Ubuntu server that I use.

  1. Install the unattended upgrades package.

    • apt-get install unattended-upgrades
  2. Configure it so stable updates are automatically installed.

    • dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades
