There should be a GUI option to install non-security packages too

unattended-upgrades (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The Software & Updates program lacks the option for the user to allow Ubuntu to automatically install non-security packages. It only supports security packages.

I know Unattended-upgrades supports automatic upgrading of other packages but it might be too complicated for new users. There should be an easier way.

Consider that Windows also deals with software updates "unattended" by default.
