According to term.log - unattended-upgrade performed the update
2018-01-06 06:41 and every package was updated (including php7.1-mbstring)

Just two minutes after that, unattended-upgrade runs again and removes
php7.1-mbstring and only that package.
I can't find any activity on the server on that time (no users logged in
and such).

So something triggered unattended-upgrade to do this,

Maybe this line is set to "true" in your
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades

Mine look like this :
// Do automatic removal of new unused dependencies after the upgrade
// (equivalent to apt-get autoremove)
Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-Dependencies "false";


Thanks!
My file looks like this:

Unattended-Upgrade::Origins-Pattern {
        "o=*";
};
Unattended-Upgrade::Automatic-Reboot "false";
Unattended-Upgrade::Mail "root";

I appended "Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-Dependencies "false";" to the end of the file. Let's hope that this does not happend again :)

Thanks for the tip!
