I'm running a Debian Mint guest on an OS X host with VirtualBox.
1) So I run Update Manager in the Linux guest: 364 recommended updates are available.
2) Everything seems to be going fine.
3) After updating, Update Manager says the same 364 packages are available.
This has happened 3 or 4 times with guest reeboots in between. I would of course like to update the Linux distro and see the words: "0 updates available." Any suggestions?
OS X version is 10.7.2
VirtualBox is 4.1.6 r74713
Debian Mint is 32-bit version, Linux kernel is 2.6.39-2-468, Xfce is version 4.8.0.
