Bug Description

Filed on behalf of original poster at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=410787 as a feature request:

"Update manager should have the option to display a log of updates performed, with a list of packages updated, and dates in which the updates took place."

A console log is produced during update (by Synaptic) but closes before review is possible regardless of setting.

This request makes sense: although the list of updates can be seen from the dpkg/apt logs, it would be easier to have an option to see what has just been done.

Marking as triaged/wishlist, and rejecting upstream task.

Let me duplicate my last remark from Bug #818815

"I suggest adding it to Update manager since this runs automatically and the user sees if frequently. He/She has to seek out Software manager. A quick-and-dirty fix might be to reference Software manager and its facilities on the final screen of Update manager, but I did envisage the history being where people might see it."
