Question Perfect Ubuntu Server 10.04 - UPDATES QUESTION

Hey all,

So I've been using these perfect servers for quite sometime now. And one thing I have problems with is updates. Each and every time I do a aptitude safe-upgrade and hit yes, the updates install and upon reboot my whole server is hosed. It will not boot up and I end up having to completely re-install from scratch. So could anyone shed some light on best practices for a production server that needs to be updated.

Here is what currently needs to be updated on one of my servers but I'm to afraid to allow it.

Code:
root@debian-srv:/home/administrator# aptitude safe-upgrade

In my case I always use LTS versions of Ubuntu, so when I update it never reboots it self after some updates - I do it manualy when I see some new kernel modules being installed.

Check your rease-upgrades file from
Code:
vi /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
and check your prompt

Second I never use "aptitude" to update the system --
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

I as well only use the LTS versions. I'm still not sure if I should do these pending upgrades, and there is a new kernel and grub.....

I think you should update... try to make a backup before.
