When I log into my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS system, I get this message:


5 additional security updates can be applied with ESM Apps.
Learn more about enabling ESM Apps service at https://ubuntu.com/esm

My question is how I find out what packages need these ESM updates. I thought the answer was "apt update && apt upgrade" but this does not show that any updates are needed:


# apt update && apt upgrade
Hit:1 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease
Hit:2 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Hit:3 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease
Hit:4 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease
Hit:5 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-backports InRelease

How do I figure out what 5 packages need ESM security updates? If they aren't packages I use, I'll just delete them.


EDIT for additional clarity: I'm not trying to update the packages. I'm trying to get a list of them so I can delete them if I don't use them.
