Updates Logging


#1

So, where do I go to see what updates were installed?

With updates I mean to TrueOS, not applications.

Thanks,

Bill

So /var/log/pc-updatemanager.log is a good starting place. However all
the things are packages now, so you may have to sift between some base
system things and FreeBSD OS.

We are trying to use this file as well:

But its taken some time to get everybody to start using it, since it is
a new workflow :wink:

I’m new to TrueOS and have been running it on my laptop for a few months. Has the location of the update log changed? I’m looking for something like the equivalent of /var/log/apt/history.log on Ubuntu where I can see what updates were applied. My /var/log/pc-updatemanager.log file is empty and every time I run pc-updatemanager pkgupdate, it always says “Your packages are already up to date!” I have no idea if any updates are actually being applied.

Thanks in advance.

Here is a snippet from about:

Stable is on a 6 month release cycle. The next stable update is planned for the first full week of December

Thanks, @RodMyers. I guess that explains why my system is always up to date!
