Debian let slip in this toxic systemd cron timer apt daily upgrade default, which almost destroyed a system I had, this command should NEVER be default, particularly not on any rolling release version of Debian like Sid or Testing.
:: Code ::systemctl stop apt-daily.service # disable run when system boot
systemctl disable apt-daily.service # disable run when system boot
systemctl disable apt-daily.timer # disable timer run
I'm trying to track down what owns this action so I can file a bug report against it, but for now, that's how you disable it.
It looks very much like this came in from Ubuntu and went unchallenged and uncorrected. Note that all ubuntu is by definition frozen pool distros, and all Debian testing and sid are by definition rolling release, and you cannot apply these types of auto updates to rolling release, that's virtually a guarantee of massive issues down the road.[/code]
