motd is not updating
 
Hi

I am running ubuntu server 10.04.2 LTS. It does not look like my motd
is getting updated.

I installed all the latest updates using the following commands, few days ago
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude full-upgrade

But I am still seeing this message when ssh into the box

20 packages can be updated.
7 updates are security updates.

I do have update-motd installed.

I had to manually remove motd.local (I think) in order to get the
previous behavior. I think some update, dunno which, borked the file.

HTH,

Actually, it was /etc/motd.tail. Sorry. Again
