update-notifier should ask to pop up when new updates available

Bug Description

currently update-notifier pops up every time new updates occur. This is very much a papercut. It should pop up once and ask if you want it to pop up again.

OR better yet just throw an icon up at the top right with a pop down notification of updates and never pop up the update-notifier.

At this point it would be good to ask the user if they want to automatically install new updates and or only automatically install security updates.
