Bug Description

I run ubuntu on an MSI Wind with a small screen. Ubuntu update manager suggests I update packages, but the window it uses is larger than my screen. What's worse, the window is not resizable. I can't see the 'OK" button. I assumed that if I just press enter, update manager would continue, but it doesn't.

Solution: make update manager's window resizable, or put buttons in a place where I can see them.
