Automatic update?

Hi there

I set my TO to automatic update but with approval needed. To my surprise, it did automatic update without my approval.

Furthermore, I remove all the installed knot stuff.

Sorry, knot is not usable as I want to just simple have a hosts file where I can add a few entries and have them resolved. Knot just ignores that totally despite having set the config to do so… anyway, instead of knot and that dnsmasq single package I did install dnsmasq full.

Anyway, after reboot of the automatic updates - where I said be for they were set to first require approval - DNS totally failed. I removed the knot stuff again. DNS still totally failed. I removed dnsmasq and readded it.

Still the same - DNS totally failed.

I did now rollback to previous and disabled automatic updates now.

So,

  1. Why did it apply automatic updates when I said they need approval?
  2. Why did Knot get re-added despite me having the packages removed?
  3. Why did suddenly DNS totally fail?
  1. Why did Knot get re-added despite me having the packages removed?

Geez, even rollback didn’t help… still can’t properly resolve the host entries in the hosts file. Why do we even have rollback?
