It does, but the updater never pops up. If for any reason it can't update the 
dbs, it may be a while before it times out. Also note that it runs 
periodically. Next time this happens, issue a 

pgrep adept

If this results anything other than nothing, that's probably your answer.

Better yet, do this

sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/lock

It will give you the complete ID of the app locking dpkg's db.
