fwupd-refresh.service - Man Page

Name

fwupd-refresh.service — message of the day integration.  

Description

Message on the day integration is used to display the availability of updates when connecting to a remote console.  

It has two elements:

This uses a systemd timer to run on a regular cadence. To enable this, run:

  systemctl enable fwupd-refresh.timer

Notes

Motd display is dependent upon the availability of the update-motd snippet consumption service such as pam_motd.  

To enable a proxy, set the systemd global environment in /etc/systemd/system.conf so all the systemd child processes have the proxy settings applied:

[Manager]
DefaultEnvironment=http_proxy=“http://internal.corp:3128/ ”https_proxy=“http://internal.corp:3128/”
