    Update Manager "Where there are other updates" greyed out in Settings

    Ubuntu 12.04 3.2.0-51-generic
    I want to change the option in Update Manager Settings for "Where there are other updates" but it alone is greyed out. How do I fix this?

    Its not where there are other updates, its when there are other updates.

    Since yours (like mine) is grayed out, I would guess that update manager does not see any other updates to offer us. I have never seen this option active and give a choice of daily, weekly and so on updates.

    What are you trying to do?

    I stand corrected: "When" not "Where". A very important difference.
    With earlier kernels, Update Manager notified when any (including "other") updates were available. Now it doesn't, even when there are updates, and I cannot change it to do so in Settings. I would like to be able to do so.
