I am not even sure what Smart Updater is referring to, what is that ?
OK, I found something, usually I don't need to read this but this is what smart update apparently means..
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto
  • Synaptic provides two methods for upgrading your system:
    Smart Upgrade (Dist-Upgrade) -- recommended
    The smart upgrade method tries to resolve package conflicts. This includes installing additional dependencies (required packages) if needed and preferring packages with higher priority. Smart Upgrade has the same effect as the apt-get dist-upgrade tool on the command line.
OK, how about some info..
Linux version, desktop in use
--you could then either run Mintupdate or another package manager, such as the standard synaptic (and find the menu panel or whatever name it has, you can probably determine its name, by inspection (looking)

Or, in a terminal, I might try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade
--and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
  • smart update...
--to get an update to your system, the menus may then be back !

Open Terminal put the following in and original panel returns after reboot!

gconftool-2 --shutdown
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel
