since the OP has got third party repositories included, we don't know
what "updater" is used. Perhaps the updater is a third party updater.

_If so_, then yes, but I don't know how the Ubuntu updater works and I
don't know if there are third party updaters available and if so, how
they work.

I'm using apt-get from command line and sometimes synaptic. I don't use
third party repositories and I'm aware of any third party software I
compiled or installed with dpkg.
