    The bug report explains why atm software-updater will not update these packages , the behavior is intentional

    Re: synaptic showing upgradable packages but nothing in software updater

    Thank you setting up a bug report. So it turns out it's not a bug it's a feature called Phased updates:
    http://www.murraytwins.com/blog/?p=127
    So if I understand it right sooner or later the packages would have got installed (in the meantime I used apt-get).

    A quote from the link above:
    One can opt out of the Phased Update process by adding ‘Update-Manager::Never-Include-Phased-Updates “True”;’ to the configuration file “/etc/apt/apt.conf”.

    I can't find that option in the man pages, so I am not entirely sure what it does. Wait until the phasing process is over and then install the package?

    That file does not exist you have to create it first then add the option to it. I'm guessing that a reboot would be needed for it to take effect.

    Code:
    pkexec gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf
