    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    This will do the job like the update manager.

    Why is your gui not working, any error messages.

    Edit: Beaten! I was slow.

    You need to run these one after the other to get the updates.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Or, in one line
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    Does it say anything if you type this in a terminal?
    Code:
    gksudo synaptic
