No Green Check on Update Icon

Post by natchezjohn » Wed Nov 22, 2017 11:53 am

18.3 Mate. Just installed and on updating it leaves kernel update and linux-lbc-dev because (it says) installing may cause problems for the unskilled (that's me) BUT unlike as in the past it doesn't show installation updates "Up to date".

Change the Update Manager preferences to how you want them.

I HAVE selected the first two policy choices and got the same result. The third would install the two warned against updates.

So it's just the icon that's the problem? I just noticed in 17.3 I don't get an icon at all, just a program tab on panel. Not going to worry about it myself since it works OK otherwise.
