Software Updater UI in ubuntu 13.04

0 votes

After updating from 12.10 to 13.04, I see that the Update Manager has been replaced by a Software Updater that shows a tree of updates with verbose ("baby talk") descriptions. Is there any hidden configuration setting to bring back the flat list with package names shown prominently?

AFAIK, no.

Choices: use apt-get in a shell, which is what I do. Or ignore it.
Why - I'm genuinely curious - does it matter?

I installed virtualbox from the synaptic package manager and then loaded windows 7 and also installed the extensions pack. For some reason when I plug in usb devices they can't be accessed by the virtual windows 7. Every time it says failed to install drivers for the usb device when I plug in a usb memory stick, or iphone or etc. What can I do to get usb support to work, the usb devices are shown in the lower portion of the virtualbox window but won't work in windows 7.

I am using kate in a gonme/unity environment.

Now on two different computers (not on an some others) I have the problem, that kate crashes as soon as I open a file. This only happens when:
- the "Terminal tool view" is activated
- a terminal view is open
- konsole is installed in the system using apt-get

as soon as konsole is uninstalled from the system, kate works fine, but the (very handy) terminal tool becomes useless.

can anybody point me to a solution?

Yesterday I upgraded a machine from 12.10 to 13.04 using the GUI from
the update-manager. Something mysteriously died towards the end (I
got some /var/crash/_whatever) & I can't figure out how to tell if the
upgrade worked or not. When I log into the machine it shows this:

Welcome to Ubuntu 13.04 (GNU/Linux 3.8.0-19-generic i686)
Graph this data and manage this system at

New release '13.04' available.
Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it.

But do-release upgrade does nothing:

/home/xxxxx $ sudo do-release-upgrade
[sudo] password for xxxxx:
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
No new release found

and aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade do nothing either. I've checked that all the entries in /etc/apt/sources.list and sources.d/*.list have "raring".

How do I verify that my system is upgraded? If it is, how do I fix the "New release" message?
