4 i use mint because of it.

5 I had always to struggle with it because this application got stuck during "Calculating...", but now with Linux Mint 18.2 it works really fine. It needs 10 Minutes for calculation when I back up the whole "/" (of course without /media/backupdrive), but then it does it job, even without root privileges!

4 this app won't update anything until update itself, therefore "refresh button" don't do anything, and that is REALLY CONFUSING, you should make this clear by an warning or something, so ppl won't press refresh and cosider that this app IS NOT WORKING !!!!!

2 It may not be the "Update Manager" that's the problem but when so many "repositories" can't be found, 404 msgs, and failures to find files how can any confidence be gained. I have spent hundreds of hours trying to learn Mint16. Most software works very well, briliant, but its hard work getting there. My hatred of MS is most unhealthy!! :-)

2 I see no added value over the more versatile Synaptic while the clever safety-score cannot be used for clever things like partial automatic updating as discussed in this idea: http://community.linuxmint.com/idea/view/510

3 Needs to have changelog info available for *installed* updates so that after install one can review what it did. Also should offer the ability to back-out an update, in case it causes problems.

5 Why is mintupdate important ?The Linux Mint strongly discourages updating via apt update because it will install all available updates with no regard to how stable they are and one can run into trouble.Mint update by default only mentions the level 1,2 and 3 updates of which 1 and 2 are absolutely safe and should be installed whereas level 3 should be safe under most circumstances.In summary mintupdate makes updates easy AND safe.

5 This application is a life saver! Compared to other updaters, e.g. that of Ubuntu, which tends to break systems due to kernel updates, this one is the key element when it comes to a stable system. Kudos to the developers for bearing stability and usability in mind.

4 Very good visual tool. However I would like to see two additional functionalities to it, if possible: 1. Point-and-click way to move new upgrade package proposals from the main screen to 'Ignored packages', probably smth like 'Ignore selected'; 2. Notifications for upgrade failure of packages, when dependancies exist at 'Ignore packages'.
