How to keep packages updated and keep in pace with security updates
In a project with multiple vms that run various applications from Wordpress to Django and various other things.
Is there a way or a tool to keep track of the packages that require updates or have security problems not on an app level but on a vm level. Do I have to ssh into each machine and keep track of the packages or is there a smarter way to do that, could a tool like ansible be used for this job?
You could use pre-made roles like https://galaxy.ansible.com/oefenweb/apt or https://galaxy.ansible.com/geerlingguy/security or https://galaxy.ansible.com/weareinteractive/apt to manage apt for system related security upgrades.
