Can anyone explain why this happens? Should I upgrade phpmyadmin

Maybe you can run the script with a "--debug" flag
("unattended-upgrades --debug") to get additional information :-?

Yes, excellent idea; thanks very much:


(leaving just -what I think- is the relevant part)

2011-01-04 16:13:26,586 DEBUG pkg 'phpmyadmin' has conffile prompt
2011-01-04 16:13:26,595 DEBUG blacklist: ['phpmyadmin']


2011-01-04 16:13:27,272 INFO No packages found that can be upgraded unattended

Hmm, well, I can't pretend to understand this; but doing apt-get install
phpmyadmin upgraded the package.

A bit worrying, though, I rather hoped the security upgrades would be
performed automatically.

Well, my wild-guess (never used this package before) is that this
concrete update requires some "user-intervention" (maybe because it asks
you some questions about what to do with the configuration files
-replace/update- or something like that... dunno :-?), so in this case,
the update cannot be done automatically.

Thanks for replying, Cameleon, but as I said, apt-get install just did it effortlessly. No interaction required.

I suspect it's a bug, but I don't know enough to report it...

Cheers, Tony
