update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

update-manager 1:0.196.7, Ubuntu Trusty

1. Begin installing updates at a terminal. (sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade)
2. While updates are installing, launch Software Updater.

What happens: Only a title bar appears, not the rest of the window.

What should happen: The window appears with "Checking for updates…" progress as normal,
with status text "Waiting for other tasks to complete…".

I was seeing this as well, and discovered that the cause was a stale update-manager instance from a month ago was still running. Killing that process resulted in the symptom going away and update-manager works properly now.
