Known Problems

Automatic Security Updates Missed

Ubuntu 16.04 shipped from Canonical with a bug 1574896 and 822317 that prevented automatic security updates.

Workaround is to temporarily hide the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50appstream and run /usr/lib/apt/apt-systemd.daily once. Alternatively, install a later release of OLPC OS for NL3.
