Maybe this is a bit of a silly question.
When I start my laptop, I usually get a message that there are upgrades available.
Once I enter the password and I click OK, then I see a terminal and something happening, but it is so fast that sometimes I cannot see what was upgraded.
The terminal closes automatically when the process is done.

How will I be able to see what was upgraded? Sometimes it is interesting to see what was done.
Is there a way to keep the terminal open?

 ???

Open a terminal, and use:

Code: [Select]
grep "upgrade" /var/log/dpkg.log


And you will see, a list of the last updated packages ...

You're welcome!!  ;)

I think you may also be interested, in using these two options:

Code: [Select]
grep "install" /var/log/dpkg.log

grep "remove" /var/log/dpkg.log








Cheers!!  :)
