software updater produces different results than apt-get

Asked by Peter Pfeiffer on 2014-05-06

Software updater notified me this morning about some updates which I choose to install immediately ... required a system reboot ...
After reading this thread (about 30 minutes after updater finished) I executed sudo apt-get update and upgrade and received this
The following packages will be upgraded:
compiz compiz-core compiz-gnome compiz-plugins-default gettext gettext-base
libasprintf-dev libasprintf0c2 libcompizconfig0 libdecoration0
libgettextpo-dev libgettextpo0 libnautilus-extension1a nautilus
15 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 3,048 kB of archives.
After this operation, 31.7 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
Well I did continue but the question is "What exactly is the software updater doing or missing?"
Maybe I should disable automatic updates and use terminal in the future...

I don´t know why that happened,because software updater have to show all available updates. I think easier way t oinstall updtes is to use synaptic. If you don´t have it install it with

sudo apt-get install synaptic

In synaptic first click on reload and after that on mark all updates. That is it. :)

Can you help with this problem?
