  update-manager doesn´t work with NOPASSWD: in /etc/sudoers

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: update-manager

  i am using 10.04 Lynx Lucid Ubuntu with version 1:0.134.9 of the update-manager.
  When you add yourself to the /etc/sudoers file with NOPASSWD: ( myusername ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL ).
  The Updatemanager / update-notify notifies you of updates but if you click the install button in the update-manager nothing happens. (It´s "Aktualisierungen installieren" in the german version).

  Expected behavior: Updates should get installed without the password prompt.
  Actual behavior: nothing happens.
