update-manager gives incorrect warnings about cancellation

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

When about to start the upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy, update-manager warned me that it would be impossible to cancel whilst fetching and installing updates.

This isn't true is it? Its perfectly fine to cancel whilst updates are being downloaded, just can be messy once the instillation of them has begun.

The window even includes a "Cancel" button despite the previous warning.
