    Updates not authenticated


    Yesterday I was running update manage and I got a message that said that some updates were not authenticated and advised me to cancel updating (which I did).

    I wanted to reproduce the error and went back into update manager and this time the updates just ran straight through.

    Hmmm...not sure what to make of this - is there any way to check that the stuff I have on my system is all in line with what should be there on the main ubuntu repository (I'm worried I might have installed something nasty)?

    I've only got and "download from server for the United Kingdom" specified as repositories.

    Should be fine. Sometimes it'll throw an error if it can't find a file when trying to update the list of packages in the repos.
