Did you install from the original 14.04 CD image, or from a more recent 
image (such as 14.04.2)?

It seems there was a problem with the updates notification on the 
original 14.04 CD.

That problem was fixed later, though installing all updates (I would 
think) would solve it.

My 14.04.2 LTS system notifies me of updates daily.

You might also check in the menu: Preferences, then within that, 
Software & Updates.  Click on the "Updates" tab, and check the settings 
of the four drop-boxes at the windows lower-right.  For example, is it 
set to automatically check for updates "Daily"?
