Update doesn't work!

Hi,everybody.
I've been working with Mint and it's been some time now that the little icon with the lock (update) isn't working,and I don't think it's my fault.I've tried through the Mint Update icon,but same there.
Has it crashed?Is there something I can do to make it as it was?
Thanks.

Nautilus:seeing file info without clicking file icon

Dear friends, I can say that almost everything I use in Mint are entirely functional and well made. Nevertheless,I cannot understand why the developers of Linux (at least Ubuntu,that I know of) haven't thought of the thing that Windows Explorer does in Win XP,and which I think is a very good and use...

Re: Playing .avi files:playback is not smooth

Many thanks to all of you,

I used Envy to install the NVidia drivers and the problem seems to be OK.
We'll see.

Re: Playing .avi files:playback is not smooth

In fact,now that I've paid closer attention to it,the same thing happens with DVD playback.

Dear friends,hi. Newbie on the block,and of course some questions are in order,so that we can find our way around.
