2. If the answer is 'yes': which would be the best/proper way to do

apt purge unattended upgrades

I'll never  understand why being so drastic is a good idea when you can
simply disable it:


"Below is an example /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02periodic:
// Control parameters for cron jobs by /etc/cron.daily/apt-compat //

// Enable the update/upgrade script (0=disable)
APT::Periodic::Enable "1";"

I would actually prefer getting rid of it completely instead of having it around if I'm never going to use it on the machine. It's not that large, but I (personally) try to keep the minimum possible package set installed.
