Good that the PC is now updated, but unfortunately that has not helped to
understand the basic problem, as 'apt upgrade' is effectively what the gui
upgrader does, I believe.  I had thought you might get an error in the
command line update which might have helped to understand the problem.  I
suspect you will find the same issue again next time there are updates.  If
so then please come back and we can try to investigate further.
