I'm running Debian 7 on vmware workstation. When I run Applications - System Tool - Software Update I just get a blank window, nothing happens.
Updating the system works fine with "apt-get update && apt-get -u dist-upgrade".
But when I do this, I get a GUI window with "Could not get update, failed to process request - more details: Operation was cancelled". I'm running gnome as a normal user (not root).
Not able to find anything interesting in /var/log/*
Anyone got any ideas what's causing this?
