Thread: Packet Manager Question

    Packet Manager Question

    Hey
    Today suddenly the packet manager symbol popped up on the panel (hover text 'A packet manager is working') even though I didn't click anything, in fact I was afk.
    When I clicked on the symbol the update manager was opened, but there were no updates available.

    Updates are set to 'don't download automatically'.

    I like to know what's going on in my system and this is not the usual update behaviour (or is it?) so does anyone have an explanation?

    Ty

    It must be an automatic sources update.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.

    correct, can be edited from the menu system > administration > software sources > updates, "automatic updates" part, uncheck the "check for updates"

    Ok, thanks.

    I thought that icon would only be displayed when updates / packets are actually downloaded.

    No, it also pop-ups when package processes are running.
