Thanks for your bugreport.

Do you still see this problem with the latest version of update-notifier
(0.38.9ubuntu1)?
If so, can you please run the python script at:
https://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/attachment.cgi?id=1781

and attach the output to this bugreport? (and also your
/root/.synaptic/preferences file)?

thanks,
 Michael

This problem should be fixed with the latest uploads of synaptic,
update-notifier and update-manager. you need to run synaptic once before the
other tools know about the locks, but then update-manager and update-notifier
should work. Please confirm :)
