Default Software updates in 11.10

I am running 11.10 on a notebook trying to get used to Unity. I haven't
turned it on for a while so today when I did the Software Updates showed
up on the launcher. When I clicked on it nothing happened. I right
clicked on it and in the popup menu choose to update the list. A dialog
popped up and a progress bar showed the download. After that nothing
again. I right clicked again and choose update. It then proceeded to
apply the updates. I was never given the chance to review a listed of
what would be updated like I am in 10.04.


Is this how it works now or is there a setting I have wrong?

Thanks, Jim

It shows up as usual to me in 11.10.

Perhaps it was automatically installing security updates? Check your
settings. Did you do a clean install?

It installed a lot of stuff including security updates.
Update settings: Install security updates and recommended updates.
Automatically check for updates daily
Security updates display immediately
Other updates weekly. (Maybe this was it) I changed
it to daily.

It was a clean install.


Thanks, Jim

You can always run Update Manager manually, by typing in the menu on the left.

OK, thanks. I'll keep an eye on it to see if the change I mentioned
above makes any difference.
