Since a couple of days ago the Update Manager shows the recommended update "X.Org X server - VIA dsplay driver". I can't check its checkbox to install it, but it still shows up. So how can I a)run this update or b) delete it from the list?

Thanks!

Have you tried running: apt-get update; apt-get upgrade from the terminal as root?

Make sure everything is updated by apt-get, and do a apt-get dist-upgrade –  LnxSlck Mar 6 '12 at 22:51
