Update Manager Needs Update & STOPS WORKING

I have been trying to use this absolutely worthless update manager for a
week. I am using a Dell Optiplex 270 with a P4. The OS works fine and runs
applications just as nice. However, the update manager that pops up tells
me there are 5 updates available. I double click the icon to view said
updates to find that one of them is an update to the update manager itself.
No matter what I check or uncheck on the list, when I choose to install
them, THAT'S IT. All I get is a rotating 'wait until you fall asleep' icon
for the mouse pointer. It's annoying as hell. Bear in mind, this is the
very first time I have tried to use linux, so your fancy jargon regarding
such will only confuse and irritate me more. Please, keep it simple. Is
there a way to do the updates through terminal? I am slowly learning how to
use that and some of its commands. However, as of late, the most used
command is KILL as I have to smash the update manager to get my machine
back. Can any one help? Dumb it down if you have to, but please, don't
discourage me even more.
