Why do I get “X packages can be updated” no matter how often I run update?

Spread the love

As a dsiclaimer I am barely familiar with linux. I know enough to install my own server and the packages I needed. What I have is:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

Everytime I log in my welcome screen is:

Welcome to Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-117-generic x86_64)

Documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com * Management:

Kubernetes 1.19 is out! Get it in one command with:

https://microk8s.io/ has docs and details.

Canonical Livepatch is enabled.

All available patches applied.

3 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.

Running apt list –upgradeable returns:

base-files/bionic-updates 10.1ubuntu2.10 amd64 [upgradable from:
10.1ubuntu2.9] ubuntu-server/bionic-updates 1.417.5 amd64 [upgradable from: 1.417.4]

Other than three update shown above, I do get notified of other updates, and running:

sudo apt-get upgrade
gets and installs all updates, except for the three shown below.

The two commands I use are sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get update
Can anyone tell me what is wrong, or more likely what it is that I am doing incorrectly?
