  [dist-upgrader] User should be prompted to update *before* the upgrade
  process starts

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm running Breezy.  I followed the directions here: 
  to upgrade to the Dapper release candidate.  Specifically, I ran:
  gksudo "update-manager -d"

  After I'd navigated the prompts from update-manager, it acted as
  expected: started downloading packages, etc.  No problem here.

  The problem is that while this was happening, the little update-
  manager icon on the Gnome toolbar popped up its little message box
  telling me that there are new updates available, and to I want to
  install them now or be reminded later.

  So the specific bug is that while I'm in the middle of an upgrade, I
  shouldn't be prompted by that little toolbar-icon asking me if I want
  to install updates.  First of all, it's a silly question.  And (for
  all I know), if I *had* clicked on that "install updates" link in the
  message, would carnage have ensued from having two instances of
  system-update software running at the same time?
