[ubuntu] Update-manager

http://ubuntuforums.org – The latest updates brought in an updated update-manager-core (0.161) that requires update-manager itself to be removed, as it's not updated. After falling for this one on one quantal install, I tried to check the Changelogs, and ran into some indications that update-manager was to be re-named Software Updater, but no information about any intention to remove it. Anyone got any more information? Luckily I always add Synaptic as soon as I do a new install, so missing update-manager is not fatal, but it does do a much better job of handling dependencies when there is a list of 100+ updates!
