MATE Packages Showed up in Update Manager in LMDE 2 Cinnamon Edition

Hi,

I installed LMDE 2 Betsy "Cinnamon" edition. After I refreshed the cache in the update manager, it showed updates for caja, mate-panel and other mate related packages; while it didn't show any update for Cinnamon related packages. As though I've installed the mate edition. But I don't have any of the mate package installed. What could've caused this problem? How do I solve this?

Thanks.

I don't know the exact version of Cinnamon you have installed. Cinnamon has a fallback mode it goes into when it crashes. This used to be metacity/gnome-panel. It now uses mate-panel for that. It could be that is the source of the updates.
