i updated to jaunty about 1 months ago,
this problem was not after update ,
only some days ago this behavior started.

Mr. MInhaj (imhell99) said : #3

Is there any way for update notifier to be shown in the panel ?

Best Philip Muškovac (yofel) said : #4

You could try:

To disable the new behaviour and get the old behaviour:

    gconftool -s --type bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false

(Take into account that this gconf change is not supported.)

To have the update manager launch immediately when updates are available, use this:

    gconftool -s --type int /apps/update-notifier/regular_auto_launch_interval 0

(Taken from the bug I posted you)
