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.
