To manually install all updates open the terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The first command updates the APT database and the second one upgrades all installed packages on your system to the newest version. This may result in a lot of downloads, but everything is taken care of automatically.

Can you help with this problem?
