July 1, 2013 6.2k views
Hi, I use this tutorial for cron-apt configuring http://www.turnkeylinux.org/docs/automatic-security-updates Looks like something wrong. First of all I didn't get the mail with update log and have some errors in cron-apt log file. CRON-APT RUN [/etc/cron-apt/config]: Mon Jul 1 04:00:01 UTC 2013 CRON-APT SLEEP: 2050, Mon Jul 1 04:34:11 UTC 2013 CRON-APT ACTION: 0-update CRON-APT LINE: /usr/bin/apt-get -o quiet=1 update -o quiet=2 W: GPG error: http://archive.turnkeylinux.org lucid-security Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available:$ CRON-APT ACTION: 3-download CRON-APT LINE: /usr/bin/apt-get -o quiet=1 autoclean -y Reading package lists...

The output looks fine. According to the article you linked, your system should automatically be upgraded.
ok,
I solved GPG error with this code http://pastebin.com/LCXH6FZm
Now log file look better http://pastebin.com/ttLX7jgt

I little confused what does mean this text in log file?
"Download complete and in download only mode"
I believe that's a part of cron-apt's installation script. It's neither an error nor a warning so you should be fine :]
Thank you Kamal.
What about email sending?
Do I need to install some extra app?
Now I have Droplet with Ubuntu 12.04 + LAMP
You should install an MTA to be able to send email. I recommend postfix as it's really easy to get started with.

sudo apt-get install postfix
