Duplicate of #658169?

I agree; I'm often don't find it obvious that any of the updates in the
list will require a reboot, and it's annoying to install the updates
only to have it tell me I need to reboot when I currently can't and
having to continue running in an unstable/glitchy half-updated state as
a result. It should indicate whether a reboot will be required

  update-manager should forewarn about reboot needed

Status in update-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  update-manager should be aware if after the suggeste upgrade the
  system need reboot, and warn the user so that he/she can decide when
  to upgrade the system.

  Actually the user may be in such a work that a reboot isn't
  recommended. Realizing that a reboot is needed after the upgrade has
  completed and not being able to make it may make difficult keep

  I'm proposing that  update-manager:
  - inform the user that the upgrade will bring the need to reboot
  - separate the packages that will be responsible for the upgrade need and offer the possibility to upgrade only those that doesn't bring the need to upgrade

  Thank you!
