So, if there were any error produced in updating one of the repositories, the results would be as described:

update-manager would correctly find and install updates, but not update the time stamp and so continuously report that updating is needed?

I no longer recall, but it could be that I had a repository at that time which produced a non-fatal error.
Around that time I had a local repository which I think produced the error that signatures or checksums could not be verified. I would expect myself to disable that repo & try the update again, but perhaps I did not. It would perfectly explain the symptoms and seems the most likely explanation to me.
