The indicator that pops up is an indicator of the style used for volume
changes, network connection information, screen brightness, etc. in the
upper right-hand corner of the screen.

It figures that it stops happening after I file a bug report. I should
have filed the report sooner. :)

  notifier is very annoying

Status in update-notifier package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My update notifier keeps popping up often, once an hour or so, and it
  pulses every five seconds for thirty seconds or something. It's
  insanely annoying, and worse yet, wrong:

  $ sudo apt-get -u dist-upgrade
  [sudo] password for sarnold: 
  Reading package lists... Done
  Building dependency tree       
  Reading state information... Done
  Calculating upgrade... Done
  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

  That was seconds after the update notifier finally went away.

  I don't recall it being this annoying on 14.04 LTS.
