Double notifications email

  • Comment out the line that starts with 0 4


    That should suppress the double cron-apt notification.


    Hello @subzero79,


    maybe you also know where it is possible to configure the second apt cron job or email notification. I also get the two Emails, one at 4 o'clock am and one at 8 o'clock am. I would be more happy if apt executes it's daily cron job with subsequent email notification about new packages at 4 o'clock.


    If not, I would configure it as recommended.


    Thanks for your help.

  • Omv installs one, the other comes from the default cron-apt package. Look at cron.d and cron.daily the solution is too keep one.


    Maybe it's in "/etc/cron.daily/apt". But sadly I am not a developer. So I am going to accept that behavior and commenting out the line with "0 4" at the beginning of "/etc/cron.d/cron-apt".


    Why do we need an extra openmediavault cron job for this, while the default cron package does it per default?

  • This behavior also exists with latest omv4. I applied the following workaround:

    So I am going to accept that behavior and commenting out the line with "0 4" at the beginning of "/etc/cron.d/cron-apt".
