Phill and all:

I just wanted to comment on the above.

One of the big improvements of 14.04, is that the Software Updater 
(menu...system tools...software updater) now works reliably on Lubuntu - 
even on my slowest (450 megahertz) machine.

They have finally fixed that bug (that I despaired they would ever fix).

It is no longer necessary to resort to using a terminal session to 
update your system.
