The other advise from Brian and Karl will get you the updates, now you
need to troubleshoot why your update manager is crashing.

1. Look in /var/crash and see if there are any crash reports.
2. Start update manager from the terminal & post the output from the
terminal after each command:

$ update-manager

Now try it with gksu:

$ gksu update-manager

On this one you should first get a prompt for your password before
update-manager opens.
