Whonixcheck no longer show number of packages that can be updated?

apt-get reports that X packages can be updated.

It’s been suggested, that it would increase usability if the number of packages that can be updated is no longer shown, because the user only need to know, that updates are available. Not how many of them. So the number should be removed.

What do you think?

I agree its not needed to know how many packages only if there is an update

Done.

no longer show how many packages can be updated since it is not interesting for the user

hope u can add also nice message not just removing the numbers like for example:-

“you have important updates to do , please update your packages as soon as you can.”

or anything similar to this message.

Based on Debian Stable policy, almost any update is a security one right?

If not, is there a way to tell update types apart: for example bug fix vs security fix and mention just the presence of the latter. The idea is to give users “useful” information about the updates so they decide if an upgrade is urgent or not.

This could be too much work to justify the feature.

Was thinking the same , but figured its not worth it .
I think novice users only care about that there is an update not whats going to be updated.
