Hello Ernst, or anyone else affected, Accepted unattended-upgrades into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source /unattended-upgrades/1.1ubuntu1.18.04.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.
Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users. If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed. Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance! ** Changed in: unattended-upgrades (Ubuntu Bionic) Status: New => Fix Committed ** Tags added: verification-needed verification-needed-bionic -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to unattended-upgrades in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1396787 Title: checking trust of archives eats a lot of cpu Status in unattended-upgrades package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in unattended-upgrades source package in Bionic: Fix Committed Bug description: [Impact] * Unattended-upgrades consumes tens of seconds or even minutes of CPU time to verify the origin of the packages * Using excessive amount of CPU is unpleasant for desktop/laptop users and also wastes computation time on servers/cloud instances. * Unattended-upgrades' algorithm for checking and adjusting package origins is redesigned to visit and adjust less packages. [Test Case] * The added upgrade-all-security autopkgtest measure the time u-u needs for upgrading security updates on the tested release starting with no security updates applied to the point where all security updates are applied but all packages are left upgradable from <release>-updates. The test also measures the time needed for --dry-run to find no updates to be installed unattended. * Please run autopkgtests and look for the to time results: ... All upgrades installed 44.41user 3.06system 0:48.35elapsed 98%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 164872maxresident)k 208inputs+192376outputs (0major+642657minor)pagefaults 0swaps ... No packages found that can be upgraded unattended and no pending auto-removals 2.83user 0.11system 0:02.98elapsed 98%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 79308maxresident)k [Regression Potential] * Due to algorithm redesign there is a risk that packages from allowed origins are not upgraded. There were unit tests for testing the selection of the right packages to upgrade already, but a new autopkgtest is also introduce to verify u-u's behavior on current real-life security-updates. [Original bug text] (System: Ubuntu 14.04, up to date packages) I noticed that unattended-upgrades spends a significant amount of time in phases where it runs at 100% cpu. On a slower machine (core 2 t7200 2GHz) this goes on for minutes rather than seconds. This interferes with using the machine for other tasks. Using the --debug option to unattended-upgrades shows that the program outputs a lot of lines like the following during these 100% cpu phases: matching 'a'='trusty-updates' against '<Origin component:'universe' archive:'trusty-updates' origin:'Ubuntu' label:'Ubuntu' site:'de.archive.ubuntu.com' isTrusted:True> From this output I guess the operation executed is not so complicated that it should require so much cpu power. ??
