Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

linards@linards-desktop:~$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04
linards@linards-desktop:~$ apt-cache policy synaptic
synaptic:
  Installed: 0.63.1ubuntu6
  Candidate: 0.63.1ubuntu6
  Version table:
 *** 0.63.1ubuntu6 0
        500 http://lv.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
linards@linards-desktop:~$ apt-cache policy update-manager
update-manager:
  Installed: 1:0.134.6
  Candidate: 1:0.134.6
  Version table:
 *** 1:0.134.6 0

This would be very useful for new users to Linux - Ubuntu distribution.

There is unused and easy implementable feature to add descriptive text as change list for titles ( separators between update types and sources in Update Managers checklistbox ):
- "Distribution Updates"
- "PPA: XXX XXX"
- others.

Fore clarification, attachment included.
