Ubuntu – No updates since a long time


Using Ubuntu, I have a habit of running:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade 

on every startup. But for a month, I guess, there have been no updates whatsoever. The message shows:

All packages are up to date

Now I am starting to worry. Can there be a fault in my update manager? As far as I know, I've made no changes to the package manager settings. But no updates for almost a month seems kind of weird. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.

Lots of people ask this question between mid-December and the first week of January when a lot of the development team steps away from the keyboard to enjoy some time doing other things, like spend time with family. Updates generally resume around the 10th of January most years so long as there are not major security vulnerabilities discovered over the holidays. If you haven't seen anything by January 15th, then it's time to investigate.
