Updating the Mint machines

I run this script for updates, it’s done well so far;

# SRJ  2019-06-24
# Add the following to /etc/sudoers.d/Update
# # Members of the sudo group can install software without giving their password
# %sudo * = NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/apt, /usr/bin/apt-get, /usr/bin/dpkg
IAM=$(basename "$0")                    # Name of this script
BaseDir="${HOME}/.DailyWork/"           # Where to begin putting files
Dir=$(date +"${BaseDir}%Y/%m/")         # Where to save journal
[ -e ${Dir} ] || mkdir -p ${Dir}
Now=$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M)             # What is today?
Output=$(date +"${Dir}%Y-%m-%d.txt")    # Where do we write this data
[ -e ${Output} ] && echo '='$_{1..38} >> ${Output}
date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S" >> ${Output}
sudo apt update |& tee -a ${Output}
sudo apt upgrade -y |& tee -a ${Output}
sudo apt-get -y autoremove |& tee -a ${Output}
if [ -f /var/run/reboot-required ]; then
  echo 'Reboot required' |& tee -a ${Output}
  echo 'No reboot needed' |& tee -a ${Output}
date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S" >> ${Output}
echo ${Now}"    Updateing ${HOSTNAME}, output to "${Output} | tee -a ${Output}
