    Exclamation Ubuntu 14.04 Not Getting Updates

    Hey all,

    I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 probably about 2 months ago and I noticed that I have to go run update-manager from the Terminal in order to get updates. I don't think this is normal, so how can I fix this? Thanks.

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Not Getting Updates

    Look at the settings in Software and Updates. This is the name 14.04 + uses for the software sources.
    Also, if you run a dash search for update manager, does it show a result for software updater?
    Software updater is the new name for update manager in 14.04 +.

    Or is it that when you do try to open and run it from the dash, or elsewhere it just acts like all is good?

    What desktop environment are you using? The method of displaying notifications varies according to DE.
