Don't want apt/cron updates

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on December 08, 2006 06:21 PM
Sorry, but I don't want to use apt/cron and download and install updates on my computer from the Internet without know what is installed on my computer.

I want it to check then inform me what software on my machine is outdated, what new versions are available, and let me do an informed decision and let me agree to what it downloads and installs on my system.
