Title: 20auto-upgrades.ucf-dist' in directory /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ error fix
Post by: Jerry on November 25, 2016, 05:32:05 AM
This error is safe to ignore, but if you want to get rid of the message:

Code: [Select]
N: Ignoring file '20auto-upgrades.ucf-dist' in directory '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension
When running sudo apt-get update from the terminal, this is the simple fix:

Code: [Select]
sudo rm -rf /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades.ucf-dist

 :) Thanks, Jerry. I was close - I was just moving the file to a backup folder in case it was needed.

No problem. It's to do with auto upgrades which we don't offer so it's pretty safe.
