When I logged in to my Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit server this morning over SSH, I saw this at the end of the 'welcome' screen:

  Graph this data and manage this system at:

18 packages can be updated.
5 updates are security updates.

I'm used to seeing 'xx packages can be updated, yy updates are security updates', but I've never seen those lines repeated twice. I'm absolutely sure it isn't a terminal scrolling/overwriting issue. The issue persists after a reboot.

Is this bad? How can I make it only show once?

This is probably due to this bug. It will be gone if you upgrade to 14.04.

  • 14.04 isn't out yet, correct? – Undo Mar 28 '14 at 0:10
  • That is correct; however, there is, as of today, a beta version available that probably has the patch applied. – Jos Mar 28 '14 at 0:12
  • @Undo 14.04 arrives on April (17?) I think. – Seth Mar 28 '14 at 0:13
