Enabling Automatic Upgrades for Ubuntu

Ubuntu allows you to install security updates automatically in the background (under Synaptic -> Repositories -> Updates), but there was only the option Install Security updates without notification, no option for just installing all updates. I searched for a way to automate it and found the solution in launchpad:

Just open /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades and enable all updates, then you can have daily automatic upgrades without notification. No more need to confirm all the same upgrades on different computers again and again, neat!
