Description

Currently, the page https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/TorRelayGuide/DebianUbuntuUpdates only refers to Debian, and uses the syntax used in the Debian Wiki. Ubuntu, on the other hand, uses a different syntax.

It's possible that both ways work on both distributions, or that Debian is using an older syntax that doesn't work on Ubuntu (I can't test that now).

I propose linking to both wiki pages (Ubuntu and Debian) for the Unattended Upgrades configuration, while informing the reader that they must set the TorProject origin as well. The rest of the instructions are not directly related to Tor, and will only confuse the reader if eventually it is no longer up-to-date with the instructions given on their official documentation.

Hey Nusenu, any thoughts about this?

I'd say lets split this page into two pages, one for Debian the other for Ubuntu.
