    Although I have chosen from the settings to ''Install security updates without confirmation''
    The updates are not installed and I am not notified .I have checked this a couple of times.I have seen posts about this situation on the Ubuntu forums but there was no solution.Is there anything you could recommend me to do.Is there any other setting I have to modify?

    Can this be useful? Or should I leave it as is and check regularly.

    This is for the behavior modification and not the bug.

    You could always just cron an aptitude update && aptitude upgrade.

    There is a script I started a year or so ago on my blog, its a start.
