Unattended Upgrades With Mailgun

System updates are very important as they contain bug fixes, security patches and feature improvements. Sometimes these updates can break system functions so it’s always a good idea to send yourself a changelog of what has been updated to help problem solve in the event of an update breaking something.

We’re going to use a mail service called Mailgun for no other reason than it’s my preferred choice of email delivery provider, they’re also currently free.

First we’re going to configure unattended upgrades to upgrade our system, I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 though you should be able to use this guide on different versions of Ubuntu.
