I meant if a tool that take care of upgrading automatically packages in
the background (e.g., unattended-upgrades) is installed and running.

That’s another annoying thing: even if it looks like a debconf screen,
it doesn’t seem to offer it’s advantages, and doesn’t seem translated
nor translatable (which is a must according to policy 3.9.1). That
package seems pretty young, not much used (comparing its popcon with the
unattended-upgrades’ one), and even if its goal is valuable, I’m not
convinced that pushing it into the default install less than two months
before the freeze is really a good idea.

Maybe the maintainers could have shed some light, but maybe they’re not
even aware of this thread.
