That's not what I meant. What I meant is a replacement for the little
tool in Gnome that pops up a window saying that there are updates and
asks whether these should be installed.
I installed apticron on my Debian system. It is very nice. Every
morning about 1/2 h after turning on the laptop, if there are updates, I
get an email saying that there are updates, and then I go to a shell and
type "sudo aptitude dist-upgrade".
So if Debian is nice, Ubuntu will be nicer still :-)
