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
