In other words,which are the criteria according to which a package is believed to be safe,or unsafe,or downright dangerous for system stability?
Assuming I'd like to install just security updates and nothing else,how should I proceed?
In Ubuntu you can check/uncheck boxes in software sources to apply only security updates,can I do this in Mint too?
If I manually edit sources.list and temporarily comment out all lines except
Code: Select all
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main restricted universe multiverse
then run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade,will this do the trick?
