    new version of update manager ?

    ok, I was getting the "update manager error" in mint 15, it actually just showed the update managter icon red-x'd out on the task bar, last night I reinstalled mint 13, because i thought it was a LTS, it gives the same error, but at least i can download some software, when i put the mouse over the update manager icon it says " NEW version of update manager available" ok, where do I get it ? I've read tons of posts on this being a problem with "medibuntu" so I removed anything with medibuntu from my computer" but i still get that " something wicked happend" I
    ve been using mint since version 7, i've never seen anyting like this. any help much appreciated.

    It's pretty pointless to get an new version of an update manager which is basically a GUI for apt-get command. I would consider using the command terminal and if you really are concern about it, check to see if LM have their update-manager package updated.

    Check the syslog for more detail errors.

    If I remember rightly, clicking on the icon should open update manager which will show the update. Once that is applied, any further updates will then come through.
