View Full Version : Updates not showing in the taskbar ..
Jun 1st 2012, 02:09 PM
Maybe this sounds like a stupid question, but since I fully reinstalled Kubuntu 12.04 a month ago, even if I set the options in muon update manager to show up, I have never any icon poping up in the task bar to tell me there are updates available. I always need to start the app to know if there are some.
Did I miss something or something did not install correctly ?
Need advice, thx ...

... even if I set the options in muon update manager to show up, I have never any icon poping up in the task bar to tell me there are updates available.
It is strange, because after installation I did not set anything and I have cautions on updates.

I've been having this problem myself. I managed to fix it by following the advice on this page: http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?57469-Muon-Update-Notifications-in-12-04
Particularly post #8 on that page which mentions a file:
which was missing on my system.
Ran the code:
sudo /usr/lib/update-notifier/update-motd-updates-available --force
which created the missing file and up popped the update notifier.
This did fix the problem for a while, but I see that again today there are updates available (in Muon) but I've not been notified of them via the popup.

I've been looking at infos on the given links and followed the different advices and then been waiting a while to see if updates would show up, but nope, still no update showing in the task bar when there are some ... This is kind of frustrating I cannot seem to be able to find where this problem comes from ... and it's right now the only one I have ... grrr ;-)
Any other idea about something that could be missing or a bug somewhere ?

I have a little bit different problem with Muon Update Manager and somewhat weird. It shows me whenever updates are available. However, after successful installation of updates also, it does not change the date under "Last update XX Days Ago (or XX hours ago)".. I mean after updation also, it shows previous information. e.g. I installed updates today, updates yesterday and the muon manager is still showing "No updates available, Last Checked 3 days 12 hours ago..." I mean how come that I installed updates today and yesterday (Not through synaptic but through Muon itself) and it still shows that last check was 3 days ago... It is very confusing and leaves a doubt about what kind of updates are being installed...
