Opening Package Updater saying a message All packages are up to date.

Behind that a error message saying

Could not get list of distribution upgrades

Failed to process request

in more details I get:

Spawn of helper '/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/aptcc/get-distro-upgrade.py' failed: failed to spawn /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/aptcc/get-distro-upgrade.py: Failed to execute child process “/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/aptcc/get-distro-upgrade.py” (No such file or directory)

Tried the following commands but all are doing fine accept openning the package updater.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
