when /cdrom/.disk/release_notes_url is missing ubiquity shows "installer update" even if there is no update pending. Should show nothing instead.

That link should not be visible, as there are no updates to the installer available. I wonder how come you can see it.

I don't know. But I can see it. Attaching the screenshot, so that you can see it as well :)

This is triggered by a CD image build bug. On the other hand, it's still a ubiquity bug - we should be showing different text if release_notes_url is unset.

The link 'update this installer' is not visible anymore. Build 20121015.1. Screenshot attached.

Good, that's how it's supposed to be. (But the ubiquity task on this bug remains open, since the behaviour without .disk/release_notes_url was still incorrect.)

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.13.4

ubiquity (2.13.4) raring; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Huge pile of minor changes to make ubiquity compatible with pep8 1.3.

  [ Dmitrijs Ledkovs ]
  * Clear "Read release notes or update the installer" if neither action
    are possible. (LP: #1066302)
  * If there is only one disk & use_device recipe is used, change next step
    button to "Install Now". (LP: #1050044)
  * When auto-partitioning is not possible, allow to manually partition
    the same drive installation medium is on. (LP: #1053030)
  * Fix the question_dialog height-for-width (LP: #862270)
  * Fonconfig-voodoo is gone, not sure if some other "fontconfig"ury
    should be called instead. (LP: #1043031)
  * Fix partman test_windows_only: if resize option is available, use_disk
    should be available as well.
  * Fix test_translated, after moving question dialog into glade from
    construction by hand.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: base-installer
    1.122ubuntu14, debian-installer-utils 1.91ubuntu6, flash-kernel

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * ubiquity/gtkwidgets.py: Don't use GObject.constants, just use the
    constants from GObject as intended. Fixes a crash with pygobject
  * Use glib API from the GLib GI module instead of GObject. The latter
    has been deprecated for a long time and triggers warnings with pygobject
