Bug Description

About the update from 13.10 to 14.04. After the commandline tool do-release-upgrade was already running for around 15 minutes, the GTK applet informed me about a new version and offered me to update. I see this as a small usability bug.

Screenshot attached.

I'm unsubscribing from this, since I'm not really a python developer.

I saw the bug, reported it, fixed it, because it was easy to fix. My fix in the proposed branch used a shell.exec call, which was reportedly 'a bad way'.

So since this is expected to be solved in 'pure python', I'll leave it for someone else.
