I'm managing multiple machines running Debian, Raspian, and Mint. On some of the machines I want to have updating and upgrading automatically. I've drafted a script that I want to do this and log if the update are successful or not.
#!/bin/bash captains_log=/home/jason/mission_control/captains.log apt-get update; if [ $? == 0 ]; then apt-get upgrade -y; if [ $? == 1 ]; then echo `date`": Daily update failed" >> $captains_log else echo `date`": Daily update successful" >> $captains_log fi else echo `date`": Daily update failed" >> $captains_log fi
I've set the script to run
@daily in a root
crontab. I run the command manually and it executes as desired. When
cron runs the script, I get success in the log but my software is not getting updated.
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong?
