Thank you. Yes, I have read and tried to follow it. I quote:
To install these packages, run the following command as root:
# apt-get install unattended-upgrades apt-listchanges
The default configuration file for the unattended-upgrades package is
at /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades. The defaults will work fine,
but you should read it and make changes as needed.
# editor /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades
It clearly says that the defaults will work fine. They don't. They don't
seem to work at all, in fact most of the files don't seem to be there.
I have tried to read and follow the whole thing. I have googled for other
things. I have got no-where. So any more useful pointers would be greatly
