Re: Update manager 4 level updates

Thank you for all the replies. I hope timeshift does not take any big space to make snapshots. If it's only 1-2GB it's fine by me, I can clean older ones. :)
Found some info about the application:

Update manager 4 level updates

Hi,

Recently I have received the updates for Kernel at level 4, though my System is set to check only for safe updates. If it's a security update, I should still install it? Just don't want to crash my stable system lol
