This is probably a real noob question...
I would like to understand what the "updates" alerts I get when logging onto my Lubuntu box actually mean.
When I read:
35 packages can be updated. 22 updates are security updates.
I understand that there are 22 security updates and 13 "regular" updates, for a global count of 35 updates.
As I want to run only security updates, I run:

This seems also confirmed with:
Which replies with a blank output.
Someone can explain? Thanks!
