#832 fixed auto-updater should conditionally display progress on stdout jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.


There are times (recovery mode, for example) where running athena-auto-update from the terminal is desirable. If there are a ton of updates, it can take a while and look like nothing is happening (because the output is going to a log). We should conditionally (either conditionalize on the "cron" argument, or take a "-v" argument or something) display output on stdout. The case could be made for a progress bar, or all output, or even to _not_ log to the normal place, since that should always be the log from the automatic invocation.

#543 fixed auto-updater should resolve conffile conflicts on -workstation jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


This was originally the second half of #483:

Right now, if anything triggers a dpkg conffile conflict, auto-update will hang indefinitely. Cluster machines invoke apttiude with "-o Dpkg::Options::=--force-confnew"

On not-cluster machines, it's less clear. It sounds like Athena 9 used rpm's default behavior, which was the equivalent of --force-confold. I think ideally the update should fail and e-mail root (which may or may not go anywhere useful), leaving them to fix the upgrade, but I don't know if there's a way to make dpkg error out on conffile conflicts.

#987 fixed auto-update's check for metapackages being removed results in false positive on natty jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.


Some natty machines have suddenly started logging that metapackages would be removed, even when they clearly won't be.
