Just what the title says. The update manager is also asking me to update to Ubuntu 12.10 even when I have the part unchecked that says "Check for new Ubuntu version updates" thing. Is there some way to turn the annoying update manager off?
Due to the way the kernel packages are built, every new (bugfix) version of the package actually has a different name. Plus you install a metapackage, which will always depend on the latest kernel.
This has as a sideeffect, that updating the metapackage for the kernel always requires a new package to be installed (the new kernel), which update-manager will happily do for you.
So instead of
