I do sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade more less every day. <br> <br>Thank you very much for your answers.

Alejandro, <br> <br>It’s still a good idea to execute: <br><pre>sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get -y autoremove</pre> <br>every once in a while.

Whoa! How soon?
