I own two machines, both of which are running Ubuntu 12.04. I use Google Chrome on both.

A Google Chrome update is available, and it appears in the Update Manager. However, I cannot select the update. There is a check box beside the name of the update but I cannot check it, no matter what I do.

This error occurs on both machines.

Updates from the usual repositories (e.g. Canonical) work fine.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

The repository I am using for Chrome updates is dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/

Thanks!

I can confirm that this issue exists (and started recently for me) on Ubuntu 13.10 as well. –  IQAndreas Oct 21 '13 at 19:22
    
I seems like the depends for google-chrome-stable are different in version: 30.0.1599.101-1 –  Gregor Oct 22 '13 at 13:26

As of noon Eastern Standard Time on 23 Oct, the problem for me seems to be resolved. (Thank you Andreas and Gregor for confirming and explaining the source of the problem.) –  user5395 Oct 23 '13 at 16:17
