Why run this on every boot?

If the update-motd.d interface is supposed to also show information like
list of outdated packages, etc, wouldn't some other mechanism to trigger
an update, be better.

I suggested a cron job, but maybe there are better ways, like apt hooks,
dpkg triggers, etc.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
