    I feel you, but on the other hand if every single community member tries to help, even if they have no idea or don’t understand the question, this is not great.

    Anybody can ask Google or an LLM, I am spending more time reading and acknowledging this bot answer than it took you to copy/paste. This is the inverse of helping.

    The problem is not “the loop”(?), your (LLM’s) approach is not relevant, and I’ve explained why.

    What was “the point”? From my perspective, I had to correct a fifth post about using a schedule, even though I had already mentioned it in my post as a bad option. And instead of correcting someone, turns out I was replying to a bot answer. That kind of sucks, ngl.

    Sure, bugfix and security.

    I’m sorry but I got a lot of very dumb answers like “have a staging environment” and “use a schedule”, even though I listed both this points in my (very short) post already. The most detailed answer I got is a playbook copy/pasted from an LLM, and this one dude was getting into all subthreads to tell me I don’t understand what I’m asking until I blocked him. So you don’t have to worry about me, this was probably my first and last thread on Lemmy ;-) Either way, apologies if I got heated up.

    Thanks, that sounds like the ideal setup. This solves my problem and I need an APT mirror anyway.

    I am probably going to end up with a cronjob similar to yours. Hopefully I can figure out a smart way to share the pool to avoid download 3 copies from upstream.

    Using scheduling is not a good option IMO, it’s both too slow (some machines will wait a week to upgrade) and too fast (significant part of machines will upgrade right away).

    It seems that making APT mirrors at the cadence I want is the best solution, but thanks for the answer.

    Making multiple mirrors seems like the best solution. I will explore that route.

    I was hoping there was something built into APT or unattended-upgrades, I vaguely remembered such a feature… what I was remembering was probably Phased Updates, but those are controlled by Ubuntu not by me, and roll out too fast.

    Go away. You’re here pretending that Ubuntu only does security updates. You have never received a bugfix from Ubuntu? And I am the one who doesn’t know what he’s talking about?

    Why do you insert yourself into conversations with other people? I am the one who’s rude?

    I find it hard to stay courteous in the presence of people like you, who reply without reading my post, call me “duder” and say I “don’t understand what I am asking for”.

    Thankfully, I did get a great answer from someone else.
