After an update yesterday, the notification icon in the bottom panel now is stuck on continually indicating that updates are available, when I check no updates are there, anyone else have this problem?

Hi I'm new here and love this Edition. After a new installation my Update Manager "Hung" leaving 6 Updates not installed.
After a Restart and from a commandline I did:

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get update
folowed by...

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
I hope this is what you need...
Cheers Jon

Thanks I tried that and cleared the problem. Great tip.
I run it this way though, all on one line

Code: Select all

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y

i completed now a somewhat big update in my BE install (over 80 packages) with the UM and in the end it reports that the system is up-to-date.
of course that means little because we all have different packages installed and the "issue" might be elsewhere.

can you please share the output of

Code: Select all

inxi -r; apt-show-versions -u

The difference can have several causes:
  • You have held back packages.
    They are listed when you run "apt-get dist-upgrade"
  • The apt-show-versions cache has not been properly updated in a previous apt action.
    You can manually recreate the cache with:

    Code: Select all

    apt-show-versions -i
