Bug Description

update-manager 1:0.121, Ubuntu 9.10

In Jaunty, Update Manager will generally wait a week or so before it shows itself once updates are available. However, it currently doesn't check to make sure there's actually a network connection to download those updates from.

I discovered this when I brought my laptop to a restaurant to grab a bite to eat and do some work - when I booted, Update Manager appeared and offered to do some updates, however none were doable.

I suggest simply delaying update manager's opening until a network connection is available.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareUpdates#Launching_automatically>: "Update Manager should launch automatically ... when the computer has been connected to the Internet for at least one minute..."

This bug has been stagnant for quite a while. Is this still an issue?

I believe update manager will still come up sometimes without a network connection, though I think it needs retesting
