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.
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.
In Ubuntu 12.04, when software updates were available, there would be a nice little unobtrusive updates icon in the gnome panel which I could click at my own convenience. In 14.04, the software updater window pops up of its own will. How can I avoid this and get a notification icon instead? I'm using gnome (metacity flashback).
Yesterday, I updated all packages through the software updater. It installed kernel 3.13.0-35. When I rebooted, I would get a completely unresponsive blank screen, so I went back to the Grub menu and I booted into the previous kernel: 3.13.0-34.
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on my HTPC for a while now and it's running okay (not fast but okay). Except every time Ubuntu Software Updater opens itself (which is every day), my computer gets unbearably slow. After the updater has opened, I can barely do anything on my computer anymore. I know I can disable the Software Updater but I'm looking for a solution, not a workaround.
