Hi Karl. Personally, I've no time for programs like update manager phoning 
home whenever you boot up, to see what updates are available.

How about doing it the manual way. Open a terminal, then do:
sudo apt-get update

When the package lists are downloaded, do:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hopefully, on ok'ing the updates, they should be installed.

All the best.
