• Updates Missing


    So earlier today I had 4 or 5 updates, one being a core update. I left it be as I was not ready.

    I forget what I did but the panel icon about these updates was gone later in the day. I was ready to do the update. I go open the Software Update and scan. It seems to take awhile and then says there are no updates. I click on Details and get this over and over again.
