Bug Description

For updates the user is not interested in (or suspects might introduce problems), it would be great to have an option to hide them, so that Software Update will stop notifying the user of their existence.

Windows Update has this feature, if you right click an update and choose the Hide option: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff382716.aspx

In Software Updater, it's unclear what happens if I deselect an update and close the window. Will I be prompted next time the updater checks for updates?

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low
