I am seeing this too. When update manager is auto-started when updates
are avaiable (in a minimized stated) and I click on its launcher icon,
its window is empty.

A easier workaround for me than closing and restarting update-manager is
to just minimize it and then bringing it up again. Then its window
content is shown properly.

For me this seems to happen every time when there are updates avaiable.
My launcher is set to auto-hide, just to mention.

  Update Manager window does not seem to redraw

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Update manager, when started automatically to report there are
  updates, auto-minimizes itself.  Upon auto-minimize, when you restore
  the window, it returns a white box you cannot interact with.

  Workaround is to close update manager and restart it manually, which
  fixes the issue since it will not auto-minimize.

  This does not happen when the window loses focus but remains non-minimized.
