Description

Installs the unattended-upgrades package to automatically install
security upgrades.


unattended-upgrades

This charm provides a subordinate service you can add to any master
service to keep all packages up-to-date automatically, using the
unattended-upgrades package.

juju deploy <master>
juju deploy unattended-upgrades
juju add-relation <master> unattended-upgrades

Limitations

Currently, no configuration is provided: unattended-upgrades provides the
ability to select specific archives and origins for upgrading, but this
package does not expose that functionality.

unattended-upgrades does not upgrade packages with configuration changes
to conffiles. This should be rare.

Neither unattended-upgrades nor this charm will re-start services to use
new libraries or executables. TODO: Check on libc upgrades. They might
restart services.
