Hello,

Only kernel updates require a reboot, everything else like Apache, MySQL, Exim, etc, etc, just requires a restart of the actual service.

Thank you @Jcats that is correct you restart to boot into the new kernel and the software updates on their own shouldn't require a reboot.

If you confirm that you are using the most up to date kernel and you're still seeing that message please feel free to open a ticket with us using the link in my signature so that we can look into the issue further.

If you do open a ticket please update this ticket with the number so that we can track the ticket's progress as well.

Thank you!
