As an update to my bug report, this problem hasn't occurred on the last
two occasions that the update-manager has appeared in the dock, so I
assume that some update has fixed this.

  update-manager can't be brought to the front by clicking in the

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Periodically, when there are new updates available, the update-manager
  icon appears in the Unity launcher on the left hand side of my screen.
  It has the blue "attention requested" triangle on the left, and a
  number in the top right, presumably indicating the number of packages
  with updates.  However, clicking on this icon does nothing, whereas I
  would expect the update-manager to be brought to the front so that I
  can install the updates.

  As a workaround, I have to do: "killall update-manger; sudo update-
  manager" which brings up the update-manager window fine, and lets me
  install the updates.

  I don't think that I've seen this problem with any other applications,
  hence reporting it against update-manager rather than unity.

  Thanks in advance for looking into this.
