The update of your system, and all the applications that make it up, is complete. Please note that except for very rare cases such as updating a kernel for example, your software and system are ready to be used right away, without the need to reboot the machine.

To go further

If you want the updates to install automatically, you can look at the unattended-upgrades package.

If you want to have an automatic alert system when there are new updates available, you should look at the package-update-indicator package.
