Question Email notification customization for Debian unattended-upgrades package


Hi,

Is there a way to customize email notifications for Debian unattended-upgrades package, especially the subject part? I haven't found how so far...

Thanks in advance

Nobody can tell you, because you've included no useful information. unattended-upgrades email notifications tells us nothing. Are you talking about the OS? A package manager? A specific package? Self-hosted Wordpress? Try providing information and you might get an answer.

It's especially laughable that the first line of your signature asks people to Please be specific in your thread title & your question Try actually doing that in your posts.

^ You're right in substance but I'm not very sure there could be a possible confusion here as I can't see any reference to "OS, package manager, self-hosted Wordpress" named unattended-upgrades in the first results of any search engine...
Anyway, yes, let's be more specific: I'm talking in this thread about Debian/Ubuntu/... unattended-upgrades package

NB: I've edited my OP to be crystal-clear.

unattended-upgrades uses apt-listchanges for the mail side if things

https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUp...pt-listchanges

skimming through manpage and peaking at some of its installed files Nothing is jumping out at me that would change the subject line.
but I have only skimmed,

you could try
Code:
apt -s source apt-listchanges
#----^ simulate you we only after the git repo
clone the git, and see if you can see where it picks up the subject from.

might be overkill
but sometimes that is the quickest way

Really?! The other replys in this thread indicate otherwise. This is the Debian forum and the OP clearly stated that this was for Debian. unattended-upgrades is a well established Debian package that works with APT.

The OP was very specific.

Strangely, unattended-upgrades email notifications seems to yield plenty of relevant-looking results...
