    Re: Software Updater not notifying

    But I must say a lot of people have migrated to particularly Lubuntu after the release of 14.04. I can see that in their profiles in the forum.

    Anyway, Lubuntu is the smallest team and there's just so much a few people can do. When one sees the bugs in better "equipped" distros, one wonders why some people target Lubuntu with caustic comments. I know that some people are very actively involved in testing and reporting bugs but venting in a forum like this doesn't really help. Sorry if anyone is offended but that's how I feel.
    Rebooted this morning and it showed up with several updates. Is there anything I could do to help ? I'm not a dev and never did any coding, merely fussing around with confi files. The learning curve may be quite steep..

    Same here - I was notified of updates about 10 minutes after system start up.

    Re: Software Updater not notifying

    Further comments: After the notification, I upgraded with Synaptic. I used the "Mark all Upgrades" button without reloading. There is a disparity on what Software Updater shows and what Synaptic shows, in that there are 5 additional packages in Synaptic's list. Why doesn't Software Updater show all upgrades? See attachment. Synaptic's History window on the right.

    Re: Software Updater not notifying

    I updated with the Software Updater this morning. /var/log/apt/history.log :
    Code:
    Start-Date: 2014-05-07  09:58:11
    Commandline: aptdaemon role='role-commit-packages' sender=':1.45'
    Upgrade: libtiff5:i386 (4.0.3-7, 4.0.3-7ubuntu0.1), gettext-base:i386 (0.18.3.1-1ubuntu2, 0.18.3.1-1ubuntu3), libasprintf0c2:i386 (0.18.3.1-1ubuntu2, 0.18.3.1-1ubuntu3)
    End-Date: 2014-05-07  09:58:22
    Running apt-get update/upgrade (but that is about 6h later) shows :

    Code:
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      libido3-0.1-0 libnautilus-extension1a libselinux1 nautilus-data
      python3-update-manager update-manager update-manager-core
    7 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
    Need to get 790 kB of archives.
    I'll have another look tomorrow to check both at the same time.

    Re: Software Updater not notifying

    I dont understand whats wrong at my end. I added /usr/bin/update-notifier to a startup, rebooted and checked with htop but Software Updater is still not notifying. When I do apt-get update/upgrade I see updates.

    Re: Software Updater not notifying

    This morning I got a notification that there were updates to be downloaded and installed. Well, there was only one so I installed it. I checked the synaptic package manager immediately there after and there were four more, two of which dealt with the update notifier. Not to be undone, I exited and checked apt-get and the same four showed up, which I installed. I too will wait for tomorrow's check.

    With the activity on this thread it might be advisable to move it to Security Discussions.
    Many folks using Ubuntu probably do not connect to this forum and an issue with Software Updater not notifying consistently is a security issue.
    This thread has some folks testing different aspects, but I'm not noticing solutions.
    Possibly some of the gurus who read security discussions will have some solutions.

    I'm not sure about Security (you can browse through it, more firewall & stuff than anything else), more Installation & Upgrades to me, but all in all GH is as good. Maybe wait for the OP and see what they have to say.
