That does not turn on unattended upgrades.
Instead, I suggest that you:
* Check that the package unattended-upgrades is installed
(and if not, install it!)
* Edit the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades
to do what you want it to do, including who to email when it
does upgrades, which repositories to upgrade from, etc.
* Enable unattended upgrades by adding a line like
to the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10periodic
You can then check in the log directory /var/log/unattended-upgrades/ to
look for logs of what it does each night.
There might be "GUI" ways of doing this also, but editing the files is
what I do, on both servers and workstations, when I want unattended
Hoping this helps,
