I think Ctrl-c is the usal way to abort an operation in any linux terminal so I don't think this is a bug. You should use instead : <select text> + <right click> + <copy>

Then, update-manager shouldn't have a terminal embedded. Copying text in terminals is done with Ctrl+Shift+C, but that's not obvious.

Yes, using Ctrl+C in lmost any terminal with print characters "^C". Try Ctrl+Shift+C and see if that works.
