apticron - Generate a mail listing packages which are pending an upgrade
apticron is a shell script which generates a mail with a list of all packages currently
pending an upgrade, as well as summary of changes - using apt-listchanges - to a
configurable Email address.
apticron is mainly intended for automatic notification of pending security updates but can
also be used in many other situations where timely updates are necessary.
The --cron option is only meant to be used when invoked by cron in order to run no more
than once a day.
Use apticron online using onworks.net services
