I have found the same having only been using 'updater' for about a
month. I disabled it at startup as I find it irritating attempting to
do updates while I am working... so I disabled it again.

Between Synaptic (I prefer), apt and aptitude - I have found work
perfectly. At times aptitude can be too clever for its own good
although some of its advanced functions make her the #1 package
