View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.04 update manager never notifies me

May 6th, 2009, 02:29 PM
In 8.10 the update manager notified me within minutes of booting up whether or not there are any updates, but since 9.04, which I did a complete new install instead of an upgrade, it never notifies me, i can leave the pc on all day and never get an update notification and it is set to check daily and notify me, but it does not. I have to manually load update manager and check myself for updates. Don't think this is normal. Is this a bug or something?

There have been a handful of threads about this. Please search before posting!

This change to the update notifier is discussed in the release notes (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904#Change%20in%20notifications%20of%20available%2 0updates).

There are a bunch of other things there that are worth a read, too.
