I enter cmd: sudo apt-get update && date>~/file1              I do not get a date in file1. Why not?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are trying to run apt-update and capture the date/time the command was run in a log file then the following should work – sudo apt-get update ;date >> file1
