No silent updates of course - the user must always remain in control. I have seen the update notification setting - but don't I still have to act on each notification to perform each upgrade singly ? Updating all in a single action ala 'apt-get upgrade' would have been much nicer.

I have a bunch of applications in the "My downloads" menu, all with the "Update available" status... But they never upgrade automatically. The OS upgraded to Cupcake fine though. But I have never seen a single app upgrade notification come up without me having triggered the upgrade.

Not being used by Android because it being Linux is purely immaterial.

Of course - it could be any package management... Just something automated !

If you want a phone with APT, you need to look at Nokia's Maemo offering.

Yes, I have noticed it and I'll certainly give it a good look.

Package upgrade on Android... For starters, the "My Downloads" list is not ordered alphabetically nor in any apparently meaningful order. Then for each upgradeable package, one must first browse to the package, then manually trigger the upgrade package, then acknowledge system privileges the upgraded package and finally clear the download notification and the update notification. Is this a joke ? This almost matches the tediousness of upgrading Windows software - an impressive feat considering that the foundations of Android package management seem serious enough. Where is my APT ?

You are in the hall of the mountain king.
