No buttons in package manager to update software

Post by jduffy » Mon Jan 25, 2010 7:43

I have 47 updates that I need to do but the package manager for some reason is now missing all the buttons needed to select updates and commit them.

What in the world is going on?

Any thoughts as to how I can fix this? Thanks.

Forgive my ignorance but what does "Rubber banding" mean?

He means that you can use the mouse (and press and hold mouse button) to draw a box across to make a selection.

Thank you both. It's an action I've done many times and now I know what it's called. :)
