Nothing is better than an update indicator lighting up in green with a check on it, lol.
Glad that it worked. :D

Hi. I cant get my mintupdate to work.

After some updates, it just close down when it start to download/install updates. I got 13 updates in list, and everytime I click to download and install updates it jumps to desktop. Its mintupdater 4.4.2.

It worket before, just strange tjat it dont want to update anymore. And yes. the SUDO passord works to write.

I' tried the commandline in post above without any help.
