After latest updates I found two bugs:

1) Grub shows "Ubuntu" and not "Kubuntu" anymore.

2) Weird/different icon for software updates in system tray. It doesn't go
away even if there are no updates available:

You can close it on right mouse click>close but that action disables "Show
notifications for available updates" in Muon update manager.

This is probably bug in latest muon update.
