Update Manager Issues

Postby anrkst » Tue Mar 05, 2013 12:08 pm

Recently, Update Manager no longer displays "Description" or "Changelog" for any updates. An example: as of this writing, I have 1 recommended update (19mb) pending, but no other information as to what or why. The only way to determine this is to perform the update and show details.

Is there a way to fix this?

Synaptic showed that it is an upgrade to Jitsi.

Hello, anrkst.

I tend to assume that you have moved the slider between
+ the upper part of the Mint Update window where it displays the list of available updates and
+ lower part of the Mint Update window where it offers the tabs "Description" and "Changelog"
so far down that it almost collapses with the bottom edge of the Mint Update window.

It should however be possible to locate the slider and pull it up again thus making the tabs "Description" and "Changelog" accessible again.
Have a look at the 2 screenshots. Hope they illustrate well what I had in mind. Hope they help you get your invisible tabs back.

Kind regards,
Karl

Hey Karl:
