    Error during updates.

    Ubuntu 12.04
    Gnome3

    When i get update notices and use the command
    Code:
    gksudo update-manager
    in a terminal to install them, I get a long list of this message:
    Code:
    (update-manager:6093): Gtk-WARNING **: /build/buildd/gtk+3.0-3.4.2/./gtk/gtkliststore.c:851: Unable to convert from glong to gint
    Should I worry about it or is there a way to correct it.

    Its just a warning, nothing to worry about. When using gksudo gtk warnings will appear.

    Why are you using terminal to bring up the GUI? Why not just ..

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    If you want to also upgrade the kernel ..

    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    I was having errors in another application I called from the command line, someone said to use gkedit.

    This was an extremely helpful link, thanks for posting.
