and

# unattended-upgrade

gives nothing

but
For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.189-3+deb9u1.

Do you have the kernel metapackage installed?

apt policy linux-image-686-pae

I wasn't aware this was needed. Are there any other packages needed for unattended-upgrade to work corectly ?

No, but you do need to configure it: https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades

tl;dr:

# dpkg-reconfigure -plow unattended-upgrades
