All good after restart. No issues at all.
BFB icon is now shown clockwise as per http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/04/c...MG!+Ubuntu!%29
Although software updater is still anti-clock.
Thanks to Matthew Paul Thomas’s specification and work by Dylan McCall and myself, there is a proposed patch to change the Software Updater’s details panel.

Sometime this morning (10 July 2012) the Software Updater stopped working on my Quantal machine. That is, it doesn't open at all, either from the Software Up To Date menu item under the gear wheel, or from the Software Update icon in the Dash.
When it started I was running the 3.5.0-3-generic kernel, but I have since upgraded to the 3.5.0-4-generic kernel and the problem persists.
I am very new in Ubuntu. Every day - some days more than once - a Software Updater appears in my left side bar. Is this normal in linux? Do I really have every day to see this and restart my computer? Obviously I don't want to miss the updater recommended for Ubuntu but too often seems to be useless.
As of yesterday (2014-12-15), both the Software Center and Software Updater have refused to run. There is a red icon that looks like a "do not enter" sign in the notification bar, which gave a notification about the software updater, which stopped working after it attempted to intstall Ubuntu 14.10.
For a while now, whenever the Software Updater icon turns green to show that there are updates available, the window is invisible. It seems to happen only when Software Updater opens itself to show a new update is available. Clicking the the icon does nothing to make the window visible, I've tried alt-f7 to move it if it's hidden off screen but alt-f7 doesn't allow me to move anything.
The latest Ubuntu Studio is amazing and comes with all the software I need to make graphics for my 2D games. However, every time I execute the "Software Updater" (the one with the orange sync icon), Ubuntu Studio seems to to "break" and become a pain to use.
I am using Virtual Box to run the Guest OS, and the problem seems to happen for Lubuntu in my other laptop which is the Alienware M11x.
When I boot up Ubuntu it shows several fatal errors, which I report every time I see them. After that Ubuntu works as it suposed to do, however. Every time I open the software updater or the Ubuntu Software Center they crash automatically.
