I am running ubuntu server 10.04.2 LTS. It does not look like my motd
is getting updated.

I installed all the latest updates using the following commands, few days ago
  sudo aptitude update
  sudo aptitude full-upgrade

But I am still seeing this message when ssh into the box

 20 packages can be updated.
 7 updates are security updates.

I do have update-motd installed.
