I can't find anything on Google that could help me to use aptitude to install only security updates using command line on Ubuntu.

I tried this: but it installed everything and not only the security updates!

How can I just install security updates?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Check and adjust /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrade . Did you replace 'karmic' with the code name of your Ubuntu?
