    Ubuntu 18.10 not updating correctly

    Hi All,

    I have noticed an issue with Ubuntu over the last 2 weeks and was wondering if anyone else had this issue.

    Software Updater tells me as usual updates are available. I click Install and it updates. I check again and it advises No software update available afterwards, HOWEVER, the next time i boot the computer it asks for the same update files. This has now been going on for the last 2 weeks. Other than reinstalling Ubuntu is there anything else i can do??

    My first screen when updating:



    Then my second screen after it finally finds the updates:

    Try doing it manually and see what happens. I have had the same issue a few times. In a terminal:

    sudo apt-get update

    Then:

    sudo apt-get upgrade
