update-notifier - Notifies about package updates


update-notifier [OPTION...]


Update Notifier can be used to check for the availability of new packages for your Debian system. When it detects new versions of the packages installed on the system are available, it will add an icon on the desktop notification area.

For Update Notifier to detect new available updates a task has to run periodically to update the package database. You can use the Software Properties application (software-properties-gtk if you run GNOME or software-properties-kde if you run KDE) to setup that task up.

Such as task is also available in Debian systems if the cron-apt package is installed, a simpler task is available at /usr/share/doc/update-notifier/examples/update-notifier.cron.daily which has to be installed in /etc/cron.daily/update-notifier
