APTus Upgrade Checker & Notifier

The tool checks (in shadow) packages to be upgraded and displays notification on desktop.


 sudo apt update
 sudo apt install sparky-aptus-upgrade-checker

Then reboot to let it start working.

It doesn’t run if:

• running live system
• no active internet connection
• ‘sparky-firstrun’ is installed

It runs ones per system boot, with 30 second of delay. If runs and finds packages to be upgraded, it lets you start the default Sparky’s upgrade tool (sparky-aptus-upgrade).

It uses Yad, so it’s desktop independent.
