Bug Description

When I select "Install updates" in the Update Manager, I'm asked my sudo password. If I cancel on this popup, the update data seems to be reloaded/reprocessed, which is useless, as these have already been loaded and processed when loading the Update Manager.

Recommendation : no reloading/reprocessing of data shall be done at this point?
