I tend to fiddle with the way my menus and icons are arranged, from moving things around to deleting them. Unfortunately I made a mistake by removing the up-date notifier icon from the top launch bar.
Now whenever The balloon comes up to tell me I have to update, it appears at the top-left of the screen, claiming I need to click the icon/button/launcher it's pointing to to update. Of course it's only pointing to the Ubuntu symbol on the applications menu, which as you'd expect only opens the menu.
Since then I've had to go to It manually via the System-->Admin menu. I've searched the "add to panel" list several times for anything update-related to no avail.
Currently my top gnome panel has the three default menus, a Firefox launcher, a dictionary-lookup, the all-in-one desk-bar search applet, volume control, the time and date and finally the shut-down splash launcher.
I'd appreciate any help towards restoring the update-icon.

It sounds like you are missing the notification area. Right click on the panel and select Add to Panel. Then add a new Notification Area applet.
