Ubuntu – How to make Ubuntu check for updates less often

updates

I'd like to have Ubuntu not check for updates as often. How do I accomplish this?

Best Answer

For 10.10 and earlier versions (and 11.04, in an Ubuntu Classic session)

Open Update Manager (System > Administration > Update Manager).

On the Updates tab, there's a drop down box for "Check for updates:", with options for Daily, every two days, weekly or every two weeks.

Or you can turn it off and just check manually whenever you want.
