Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

Hi all,
     The current update manager does not have filter function to let user select the some package quickly.

For example, I got 98 packages waiting for upgrade, 5 packages are security updates, the rests are recommend updates.

Then I found I can not select the security-related updates in quickly, its pretty annoyance me.

Therefore, please consider to add a filter function for update manager, thanks.

Thanks for your bugreport.

I added code in the intrepid version that allows selecting/unselecting complete categories (security, recommended, proposed etc). Would that serve your need?
