Which version of Ubuntu are you running on the affected system?

I have observed this Update Manager behaviour on my 12.04 system. I
usually close the application as you do from the right click menu, then
launch the application myself.

I have not observed it with Software Updater in 13.10 or any of my
14.04(.1) systems.
