Update Manager – Jaunty

Jaunty now notifies the user of available updates via a new popup notification window which appears every 7 days and nags the user to update. Security updates will notify as and when. If you would like to revert to the old version which places a reminder icon on the top panel when any update is available without opening the update manager, follow these instructions.

In a Terminal type the following;

martin@ubuntu:~$ gconf-editor

this opens the Gnome configuration Editor, then navigate to [Aps], [update-notifier] and untick the [auto-launch]  option, then change the [regular_auto_launch_interval] to zero, then [Quit] the application and reboot your PC.
