Upgrades Made Even Easier

Stay ahead of updates with a little cron magic, courtesy of reader Paul Duncan. Run apt-get update && apt-get -fmuy --download-only dist-upgrade every night. -fmuy --download-only automatically downloads but doesn't install all the files you'll need to upgrade. When you next run apt-get upgrade, all the deb files are already cached locally! Run apt-get autoclean weekly to trim your cache.
