Hi guys.  Some people prefer to not have to intervene at all with the update and upgrade processes of their Ubuntu system, because they rather have the system to be automatically updated and upgraded itself and just logged the progresses to a log file, in silence.  Of course, there are other people who prefer to have Ubuntu asks them for permission to upgrade through graphical user interface, and this is fine too.  Nonetheless, I like the former idea better.  Therefore, if you want to have Ubuntu automatically updates and upgrades itself without making a single fuss, then you should watch this video.  For your information, in this video, I will use aptitude command line instead of apt-get command line to allow Ubuntu system to be up to date.  How come?  Well, let just say I prefer aptitude package manager over apt-get package manager.  Nonetheless, you can just switch out the aptitude commands for apt-get commands, and you will still be able to achieve the same goal.  Enjoy this educational video!!!
