Ubuntu – I can’t seem to update Ubuntu; Software Updater is blank


Ubuntu Software Updater is blank when opened.

top of Software Updater window, completely blank

I also can't update through Ubuntu Updates in the Ubuntu Software application.

I could use the terminal but then I would have to type in my password, which I don't normally have to do for updating, and seeing as it is playing up, I guess would this be a security risk.

I have tried to remove/uninstall Software Updater but it doesn't work.

  • It is a known bug for the moment, the cpu also runs at 100% with this bug.

    A quick fix is, open the program named software & updates uncheck unsupported updates(xenial-backports).

    This fixes the problem for now.
