There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section.

I have just installed Mint 14 and have been informed I have a large number of updates available. In the past, after clicking the tray icon I am shown the update screen, clciked OK and the download and updates are installed. However, in this case, absolutely nothing happens. I've tried uisng KGET with the same result - nothing happens - no screen with kget appears and no hard drive activity or sign of downloading. What have I done incorrectly, please? I have a good Internet connection which is accessed OK for email and browsing.

There could be a bug in the GUI updater. Open a terminal and try to update from there, reboot, and see if the GUI/tray updater starts working again when the next batch of updates becomes available.
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
