Your thought makes a lot of sense. I had update notifier enabled to
start up even though in the settings I had it setup NOT to notify me.
I really don't understand why would someone go through the trouble of
opening a terminal then typing "apt-get update" just to have a
graphical tool show up and do
what they can do with just typing "apt-get upgrade".
