Firstly, rigo will notify you when you have updates for packages and give you a button to click to update them. You won't miss it, I promise you. It pops up at the top of window.
Secondly, rigo isn't presented in a way to sort applications by sub-categories. As it turns out, the way most people used package managers would be to do something like the following[no citation will be provided]:
1) Do a google search to find out the name of the application you want to install.
2) Type that name into the package manager and install.
Rigo cuts out step 1. Search for the package name, or search for some generic term and a list of applications that apply will pop up. From there you can dive deeper into the packages presented or refine your search terms. Yes, it is fundamentally different from the way most other package managers display available packages. But when it boils down to it, most people don't really have a reason to sort things by sub-category other than "I like it", which really means "I'm used to it".

example : if you search a games but you don't know the axactly name ,type "game"
all results will be filter with "game" keyword or more
then you can browse them.
other example : you want list all packages that provides "java" and "xml" (packagename or description)
type: "java xml"
other : for "arena" keyword will provide all "quake" games and other.
client web ? (how many ?) : type "browser web"

When a package shows up, click on it, then click on the "More Info" button. That tells you all of that information. Maybe that's not extremely intuitive and perhaps there should be more easily seen identifiers without needing to click twice, but that information is there.
Also, have you tried clicking the button to the left of the search bar? Doing so gives the options to see the following things:
Show Installed Applications!
I don't use Rigo ever because I prefer the command line, but it really just seems that you haven't played around with rigo very much.
Also, I apologize for sounding so harsh. Lots of people love to come on these forums and complain that rigo doesn't do this and doesn't do that and they don't like it. They talk about how sulfur was great, even though it was slow as hell.
Please, just try playing around with rigo more. I think you'll be surprised at everything it has hidden within it.

I do see where I can find a specific package but it does not seem to handle package categories very easily. Everything is sort of a game: type in some "text" in the search bar and it returns some sort of "match". But it does not show you the state of a package, such as even an icon to tell you if a package is installed, uninstalled, upgradeable etc. It also gives no information about a package such as what it is, what it does, what dependencies it has, what and where its files are and are installed. And if I choose to delete a package it gives no information about what other dependent packages must also be deleted, what needs to be upgraded, or anything at all.

Nor is anything else about the packages in the list readily apparent. I am sorry but this seems like a ridiculously primitive visual interface. Why go backward from all the great GUI of most OS applications into the dumbed down visuals of the usual web page presentation. I see no reason for this.
