When i perform updates via the GUI under the heading 'Important Security Updates' is a heading 'linux-headers-ec2', but i am unable to tick the adjcent box to download and install it, i've installed all the other updates but this one remains on the list!

what dose this mean? is it nor relevant to my system? why won't it go away!

i'm on Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit Karmic

It's probably because of a dependency problem. Can you post the output of

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Don't actually proceed with the upgrade just yet in case it may want to remove half your system or something.

Just wait a couple of days for the dependencies to catch up, do not whatever you do, do a partial upgrade, they have caused nothing but problems.

so in a couple of days when the dependencies catch up it will download and it will all be fine?

Another thing to make sure of, is to make sure you have all the repositories enabled, as there may be some dependencies in some of the other ones.
