Question Alternative to Update-Notifier


I'm running Stretch stable with backports and am looking for an alternative to Update-Notifier, which is not in the stable archive. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You can always run "sudo apt-get update" then "sudo apt-get upgrade" to update your repos and see if any updates are available

Thanks,

I can get by using Synaptic, but the added convenience is nice.
