Bug Description

I noticed since someday already that the software update entry keep showing a wrong feedback. everytime I update my sourcelist or an app( any kind) the session menu keeps telling me that I need to restart my computer to complete the update ...
yesterday I noticed that ignoring this feedback and install an app from Software center fix this bug but that is random.

Way to reproduce it :
I don't have a proper way to reproduce it yet, for exemple :keep updating your source list, add a ppa, install an app, make any upgrade ( please choose only action you know should not require a restart) .

Confirming here from an update post Beta 1, even up to latest Beta 2. Apparently triggered only when update-manager is invoked at least once in the running session, either manually or via the indicator-session menu.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner.

Since the system update app now gives user feedback on updates available / restart needed / etc, system update information has been removed from indicator-session. As such, I'm closing this ticket as invalid now.

Thank you again for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please submit any future bugs you may find.
