The AGL Unified Code Base (UCB) is a Linux distribution built from the ground up through a joint effort by automakers and suppliers to deliver a modern in-vehicle infotainment and connected car experience for consumers.
The goal of the UCB infotainment platform is to provide 70-80% of the starting point for a production project. This enables automakers and suppliers to focus their resources on customizing the other 20-30% to meet their unique product needs.
Looks like each car will have its own custom version of this distro, meaning that updates will be provided by the manufacturer, so this will have the same update problems that Android has.
