MInt updates - can I set levels?

Post by JAK_O »

Hi, i search into blogs, forum, and IRC but w/o success

I use LMDE and have some issues with MintUpdate. Into the last Sylvia version i could set level of update (1-5) and easy remove or unlist and hide what i do not want. In this DE version instead i cannot hide kernel and software update.

I see the splice tab but this do not operate as i want.

This is the question: can i hide kernel and software update and notifications and gain only security update?

Well, kernel updates usually also contain security updates....

Hello, JAK_O.

The level system (level 1 to 5) was dropped from the Linux Mint Update Manager more than 5 years ago.
Cf. e.g. this post: viewtopic.php?p=2059092#p2059092. The safety levels were dropped in release Linux Mint 19, which was published in the middle of 2018.

The people of Alderaan have been desperately fighting back the clone warriors sent out by the unscrupulous Sith Lord Palpatine for 840 days now.

When update manager offers an update you can right-click the update
and choose to ignore it once or ignore it forever.
Those files will be listed in Edit/Preferences under the Package tab.
You can add them back if you change your mind in the future.
Everything in life was difficult before it became easy.
