Following a periodic, in my case weekly, run of:
is there much benefit from rebooting?
I usually use apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to run my updates and upgrades instead of the GUI because it seems to run more quickly.
However, I've noticed lately that I often get a message that one of my upgrades was held back. I then usually run dist-upgrade to run it through and it works fine.
Is there a clean way to detect when apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade was last run on an Ubuntu Server?
If there isn't a way to do this by default, where would be the best place to modify a script in order to track when apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade has last been run.
