    upgrades: Clean up old kernel packages during automatic upgrades · 0583787a

    The unattended-upgrades package removes older kernel packages before
    starting the upgrade process, so that the current kernel and the newly
    installed kernel will be retained and all older kernel packages will
    be removed.
    
    The removal of older kernel packages requires "apt autoremove" to list
    them. So, a setting to enable autoremoval of packages has been turned
    on as well.
    
    When tested on a vagrant box, the current kernel 4.17.0.1 and the new
    kernel 4.17.0.3 have been retained. Older kernels were removed
    preemptively before the installation of 4.17.0.3
    
    Fixes #1372
