When ever I run Software Updater, I get the following security update option User space IEEE 802.11 AP and IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP Authenticator enter image description here

However I cannot select this update and after installation of other updates, I get the message that Ubuntu is up to date on my system.Also updating from terminal does not rectify this situation.I am confused about this. Please someone explain me why I cannot select this update and why I get the message that everything is up to date?

My question might be a duplicate of problem updating user space IEEE 802.11 AP and IEEE 802.1 but it does not have an accepted answer and so I am asking again.

UPDATE Doing sudo apt-get dist-upgrade does not rectify the situation

  • Did you run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ? – Raphael Nov 15 '15 at 6:59
  • No but will it help? – Subhadip Roy Nov 15 '15 at 7:00
  • It should help. – Raphael Nov 15 '15 at 7:01
  • It ran the command but there was no mention of the above update. – Subhadip Roy Nov 15 '15 at 7:03
  • If it doesn't, the problem may go away in a day or two. Ubuntu doesn't usually have out-of-sync package versions, but it's been known to happen. – Darael Nov 15 '15 at 7:04
