My home server used to run Ubuntu 10.10 server with
apticron installed, which periodically (via
cron) sends emails when updates to your installed packages are available. This email includes a list of the changes in the packages thanks to
apticron's dependency on
I recently rebuilt the server from scratch after a hard disk failure, this time using Ubuntu 11.04 server but with this newer Ubuntu, when I receive one of the
apticron "Updates available" emails and log into the server to run
aptitude full-upgrade to install said updates,
aptitude displays the same list of changes and requires me to quit the pager before it will install the updates. It also sends me another email with the same list of updates in it again. This change in default behaviour from 10.10 to 11.04 is starting to irritate me. How do I turn off the "display changes when upgrading" feature?
I've tried uninstalling
apt-listchanges which does prevent the changes being shown when doing the
aptitude full-upgrade, but unfortunately stops the list of changes from being shown in the
apticron emails, which I want to keep.
