I was in the process of downloading the usual security and software updates on the updater and the power went off and on.

Is there a chance it could have completed ?

How do I check if the updates completed or not?

The forum is blocking me if I post the single instruction, but you can see the log by entering these commands (or use the equivalent single command).

Code: [Select]
cd /var
Code: [Select]
cd log
Code: [Select]
cd apt
Code: [Select]
cat history.log
If there is an entry in this log with start and end date/times just before the power outage, the odds are that it completed ok.

The most recent update (for five.eight) was a Samba change, so your update should have included that.

Check your version with
Code: [Select]
sudo smbstatus
If it reports 4.15.13-Ubuntu, then at least that got done.

Depending on how often you update, other packages may have been affected by the outage.
You'd need to let us know when you last ran updates normally prior to the one that potentially got interrupted so we can look at other packages.

Howdy folks,
I was in the process of downloading the usual security and software updates on the updater and the power went off and on.  When I turned my machine back on I checked the updater and no updates were available?  So, I checked using the terminal and received the same using apt-get update and upgrade.  How do I check if the updates completed or not?

Best regards
Vint,
God Bless Texas
