I have a nifty server that does our updates by a specialized script. The problem is the main admin of this is part time and rarely here. I have Debian functioning as a device OS. When updates get applied I need to be able to see when they got applied on the device. I did a dpkg -l and it shows a lot besides that. We also checked the dpkg.log in /var/log and it only shows us the date when the updates were last installed.
