I'd like to keep a desktop automatically up to date with 'security updates' without any user input (as my friend is not comfortable applying updates).
I was thinking of using the debian package 'unattended-upgrade' on this LMDE install for a friend. Looks like it may be designed for this??
I've noticed that you can select the 'unattended-upgrades service' (Control centre - services) but I'm unsure when the unattended-upgrades package will be scheduled to run (I've not been able to figure this out from the documentation). The desktop is booted up most days but does not remain 'on' for extended periods of time.
What is the best way of keeping an LMDE system up to date automatically with just security updates?
