Message printing after I apt-get install or needrestart about services, containers, user sessions and VMs


This Content is from ServerFault. Question asked by Costas M

I’ve just put Ubuntu 22.04 on my server, and when I execute apt-get install x(where x a package I want to download) or needrestart, I get this message that I haven’t found an explanation for.

Running kernel seems to be up-to-date.

No services need to be restarted.

No containers need to be restarted.

No user sessions are running outdated binaries.

No VM guests are running outdated hypervisor (qemu) binaries on this host.

Also, after the last line (No VM guests are running outdated hypervisor (qemu) binaries on this host.), it has some delay before I can type another command.

Any help as to what it means and why it appears would be appreciated
