Normally it means that there are 13 updates waiting to be applied but
you haven't given it permission. Check your update option, it should
tell you that there are 13 updates and let you chose which one. Or mark
all and then go back and unmark any you don't want. Although, if you
really don't want an update you might consider just removing or
completely removing the package you don't want.
