It looks like the version of smartmontools that is installed in Ubuntu
is quite out of date.  When I looked at my Ubuntu 18.04 system, the
version installed from the standard package shows as "release 6.6
dated 2016-05-07", which is too old in the fast changing world of SSD
drives.  And the package does not seem to have been built to include
the "update-smart-drivedb" command.  So you may have to install a
later version compiled from the source code, which gets a bit messy:


I seem to have done that some time ago, which is how I have the
update-smart-drivedb command.
