Hello everyone, is there a more or less simple way getting the number of all installed outdated packages for linux and macos?

Hey @Adrian Junge! The lack of centralized databases really makes that difficult to accomplish. A more common approach is to identify key pieces of software to query for/set up policies to monitor. If you’re just looking at the Important stuff, it’s a lot easier to manually manage. Then rely on vulnerability scanning to keep an eye out for potential problems.

@Kathy Satterlee So there is currently no way to get with osquery/fleet eg from apt-manager a number of all the packages that have an update pending?
