[PLUG] Mint Update for Ubuntu

Among the things that distinguish Mint from Ubuntu is its updating utility, "mintupdate". For those not familiar, it: -applies software updates selectively, according to safety rating. Safety rating is provided only for the Ubuntu and Mint sources, obviously repos you add, you're on your own with -allows you to switch between a list of kernels available, and automatically handles everything that goes along with a switch -allows you to upgrade to the next point release of the same version (17.0...17.3)

Apparently an Italian Ubuntu publication has created a version of mintupdate that runs on Ubuntu, which you can add via PPA:
I have not used it.
