I do not have an update manager, how can I reinstall it? I clicked the gear and searched "Update Manager" and nothing comes up. How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

The app called "Update Manager" in Ubuntu 12.04 has been renamed "Software Updater" since Ubuntu 12.10. To launch it, open the Dash Menu and search for "Software Updater".
