Cinnamon 20 Update Manager/History of Updates not working!


Hi. I'm running Cinnamon 20 in V.Box 6.1 on an osx imac and everything seems to work pretty well so far except for Update Manager/History Of Updates. History of Updates is not updating, i.e., it's not showing any new updates being installed beyond a certain point even thought new updates have been downloaded and installed. I've googled & looked through Release Notes but haven't seen anything specific to this problem.

Does anyone out there have any idea how to resolve this issue? Below is system info, what other info should I provide? Any questions or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

P.S.: I also have Mate & Xfce 20 installed in V.Box 6.1 and they both work great!
