Backups Ubuntu 18.04

After creating (development) droplet from existing production snapshot which has 100+ packages to be updated in it, development droplet has only 5

Why there is such difference?

Ubuntu 18.04.1

No difference what so ever.

  1. Created snapshot from production droplet which has 100+ packages ready to be updated
  2. Created droplet from this production snapshot
  3. Logged into newly created droplet
  4. See that only: “5 packages can be updated”

It sounds like the snapshot is corrupted or the packages were auto updated. It requires our support team to look into it in detail. You can get in touch with our support team and they will be happy to help you:


  • Thanks for the input. I doubt that snapshot(-s) were corrupted as we tried to use multiple different ones and at different time.

    Regards auto update I cannot comment, but would love to hear more.
