Does Ubuntu 14.04 not support last apt-update check ?

Hi,

I'm having an issue with a puppet script where Ubuntu 16.04 can very
simple calculate the last successful apt-get update, 14.04 returns a
-1 and is not capable it seems.

Is this not possible in the apt version of 14.04 ?

On Ubuntu 14.04 $apt_update_last_success defaults to -1 as the same
config works perfectly on Ubuntu 16.04 both with Puppetlabs repo
packages.

Supported Release 2.3.0

'daily': {
#compare current date with the apt_update_last_success fact to determine
#if we should kick apt_update.
$daily_threshold = (strftime('%s') - 86400)
if $::apt_update_last_success {
if $::apt_update_last_success + 0 < $daily_threshold

{ $_kick_apt = true }

else

{ $_kick_apt = false }

} else

{ #if apt-get update has not successfully run, we should kick
apt_update $_kick_apt = true }

}
