Software Selection Screen

How do I launch it after install?

Right! If I remember correctly, I was also presented a screen to automatically install all updates, only security updates and do nothing. Can you also tell me how to bring up this screen? – Michele Jan 16 '13 at 17:52
Please ask that as a new question! – Jorge Castro Jan 16 '13 at 17:54
