The system does not make automatic updates, and there is a red and white circular symbol in the notifications area. However I'm able to do updates from commande line.

sudo apt-get update gives:

UPDATE This is an snapshot of my desktop: http://s16.imagestime.com/out.php/i1140776_ImageProblem.png

top right, there is the symbol problem of which I spoke.

  • Welcome to AskUbuntu. 1) Run commands with LANG=C in front of them. This way they will give outpit in English. 2) I don't see any problems. – Pilot6 Aug 19 '17 at 9:21
  • Is the second command sudo apt-get upgrade? So what is the problem? The 3 packages that are not upgraded? – Pilot6 Aug 19 '17 at 9:28
  • @Pilot Well done, and thank you for your welcome. I know that it seem no problems..... but automatic updates don't work – Nick Aug 19 '17 at 9:30
  • @Pilot6 No, the problem is that automatic updates from gui (graphics interface) don't work, although manually from the command line I can update the system – Nick Aug 19 '17 at 9:32
  • What do you mean by "don't work"? There are no updates. You can run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to upgrade those 3 held packages, but nothing else is available. – Pilot6 Aug 19 '17 at 9:32
