Does the KDE version of the update notifier work? I've never seen it pop up in my VM, even after waiting an hour, and I tend to just give up and update manually from terminal.

The repos are switched to the usual ones I use, ie Italy for MX repos, and HK for Debian repos.

It worked well for me in my tests.

The update notifier doesn't seem to work automatically for me either, but it pops up immediately if I do an apt-get update.

Yep, but that isn't very helpful.

I'm not sure how KDE deals with that, I guess I will have to leave it on for a day-two to see if it picks updates. You could also set a "apt-get update" cron job to update as often as you want... DPKG probably has a setting that handles that too.

Did yours pick up updates?

I don't keep booted up to the same distro so my MX-KDE VM is closed in one distro and opened in another the next day. But still, all my other MX VMs will display updates within 30-60 mins at most after bootup. This one just sits there not showing updates in the notification icon until I do a

sudo apt update

in terminal, which defeats the purpose of the update notification.

Is cron or anacron a service that needs to be started? Is there a way to check if it's enabled or something?
