Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and help make Ubuntu better. I can confirm the beep in update-manager on Hardy, using the steps you provided above. However, the tab focus changes correctly for me, so that might be a separate issue.

The beep only occurs the first time I change tab focus. Subsequent changes of tab focus result in no more beeps, until I close and then re-open update-manager.

Note that you can disable system beeps in Hardy by going to System -> Preferences -> Sound and selecting the 'System Beep' tab.
