UUOTac?  Try "sed '1,4d'" instead of the tac|head|tac stuff.  Or better,
use an awk range to filter the output:

awk '/^Setting up/,/^Updated Packages/{next};{print $1}'

Although this might be better, because it could be used with '-e 0 -d 0'
consistently:

awk 'FNR==1,/^Updated Packages/ {next}; {print}'
