The Update Manager is showing '2 updates have been selected' and that 4.1mb will be downloaded.

In the info box, no updates are shown.

When I click 'Install Updates', the installing updates box opens and closes immediately and it shows the progress bar as it shows after it's done refreshing the sources.

I did 'sudo apt-get upgrade' in the terminal and it shows that no updates are available. What's the deal?

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I did some searching in Synaptic for packages that I had locked, and I found that two packages I had locked and forced the version of, so I unlocked those packages and now it doesn't show that '2 packages have been selected' anymore. Still, I think this is a bug.
