Works perfectly. Installation of this package installs 2 systemd units in /usr/lib/systemd/system:

  • autoupdate.service
  • autoupdate.timer

Note: Default behaviour of autoupdate is downloading but NOT installing new packages !

For download & install new packages (with AUR support, yaourt already installed):

  • sudo nano /usr/lib/systemd/system/autoupdate.service

  • exchange line: ExecStart=/usr/bin/nice -n 19 /usr/bin/yaourt -Syyuaq --noconfirm

  • Reboot
