I had this same problem earlier myself.

I followed his exact advice, In my case I had add an application from a PPA the 5-a-day, This application doesn't automatically get marked as an update is available so that you can have some level of control over what is getting installed from a PPA (Personal Package Archive). If you follow what he says in that post, and open up Synaptic Package Manager and check the Mark all upgrades option, it should then reload automatically and you should then be prompted to go ahead and install your updates.

Hope this helps.
