update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

1. If you choose to perform a major upgrades from within the update-manager, there should be a warning that there is a certain knowledge of the system required to perform the upgrade succesfully - for preventing persons with little knowledge to perform the upgrade alone and then resulting in an instable system or a system not working at all .

2. Reasonable default settings during the major upgrade, and warnings/explanations wherever crucial decisions have to be made, e.g. while upgrading from 9.10-> 10.04 GRUB-settings were taken over from the previous version by default, resulting in booting with an old kernel.

3. In case of minor upgrades, please make a difference between urgent security updates and updates with which you can / should wait until you have a chance (time respectively someone with some Ubuntu knowledge if you don't have it yourself) for solving possible problems, such as a non-working touchpad after a kernel-update.
