For your information.

Don't know if a problem with my computer/bug still exist's.

I was able to view and download the next updates available on the 26th May 2016 and they were sucessfully updated.

Writing this on the 27th May at 10.00 BST (UK) (no updated available).

Could I congrtulate the Ubuntu people as I have converted to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS from XP desk top and Win 7 and 8 on laptops.

2 HP laptops running the 64 bit version and this old Dell 32 bit version, which plays up accasionly I think it runs out of memory screen goes gray and it pauses, some times I have to reboot.

But compaired to XP it is brilliant

Thanks again.
