Please review my 12 lines Ubuntu-Nginx environment script:

ufw --force enable && ufw allow 22,25,80,443,9000/tcp
apt-get update -y && add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot -y && apt-get update -y
apt-get upgrade zip unzip tree unattended-upgrades sshguard nginx python-certbot-nginx mysql-server php-fpm php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt -y
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get upgrade postfix -y
sed -i "s/post_max_size = .M/post_max_size = 250M/ ; s/upload_max_filesize = .M/upload_max_filesize = 250M/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini
sed -i "s/;cgi.fix_pathinfo=1/cgi.fix_pathinfo=0/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini
wget -P ~/myAddons/{,,,,,}
curl > /usr/local/bin/wp
echo -e "0 0 * * * ~/myAddons/ \n0 0 * * 0 ~/myAddons/" | crontab
chmod +x ~/myAddons/* /usr/local/bin/wp && source ~/myAddons/ && rss
# sed -i "s/# gzip_/gzip_/g" /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

What can I shorten/automate here? It feels to me a bit heavy, even though it is quite short.

The script looks alright. What I could suggest maybe is adding some error handling with some if the conditions to stop the script if any of the commands fail.

For example, you could add the following:

# exit when any command fails
set -e

That way the script would stop if any of the commands fail.

I usually use this site here to check my shell scripts for some issues and advises on best practices:
