@mckub1 I've been running the proposed fix for Ubuntu for about 7 months
now. I've only seen it fail to update the updates_available value once
during an upgrade. The failure with the proposed fix was running under a
virtual instance of Ubuntu on my MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016), which
screamed through an upgrade. However, I have not seen such a failure
since, and clearing the cache manually always fixes it.
In general, this issue requires a special race condition to reproduce,
since some system configuration are not experiencing it. My older
server, which runs on a quad-core AMD Phenom II, was the first to
exhibit the issue of failing to update the updates_available value.
