    Did 'ezjail-admin update -u' work or not?

    Sorry for creating a new thread but I thought it would be better to start a new one either to respawn the old one. But I didn't understand from an old discussion if it was a bug of ezjail-admin or it was a normal behaviour. But how to update jails in that case? And how do I understand update is...

    why is it bad practice to automatically update the system?

    Right now I have set up my home "play box" machine (vsftpd listening on Internet, Samba listening on LAN, BitTorrent client) to apply updates in the core system and ports in an unattended manner.
