Can you try the following in a terminal and see if you get a different result?

Code:
apt update && apt upgrade

Ran the command in terminal, after a long stream of text, the following was the end of text string:

rebooted.

tried to boot into recovery mode.

rebooted peppermint.

ran `update manager'
(still partial update error)
got:

Image

Before this there was 7 kernel files which I have not updated for over 6 months (I am using a later kernel - 3.1)
now only 3 kernel files and the 2 chromium files.

If I click on any of these the arrow does not check.

Everything is still working and has been `solid as a rock' for like 6 months.

So it might have a kernel confusion - kernel updates break my nvidia drivers.

I am thinking that maybe I should do a safe kernel update (disable nvidia drivers and enable nauveau first)
and take it from there.

I may as well do a full backup first as I have a lot of apps and customisation onboard.

Or just leave it as is for now as all is still working ok.

Opinion and suggestions please.

You/ve already stated my opinion/suggestion ;)
I don't use chromium, so don't know the update level, but if not a huge security issue, why bother?
Just my Two cents

I'm also in the "only update when necessary" camp, but don't see anything wrong with the "nvidia safe" kernel upgrade strategy. One of the small pleasures of being your own admin is getting to choose your own update policy. The general rule of thumb is that the fewer updates you install, the more stable you'll be (unless of course you're updating to fix a buggy / unstable program!). On the other end of the spectrum you'll see more features and maybe performance improvements by being on the cutting edge, at the cost of the effort it takes and a potentially less stable system with more bugs being introduced as a result of updating to less extensively tested packages.

Doing a cli backup which recompiles all deb packages.
12 hours later it is still compiling.
I think I will leave things as is and see what occurs as new updates come in.
I suppose if I really want to update chromium I can do so from Chromium site (as deb).
Everything has been to stable to dive in and mess around at this stage.
Thanks for comments and assistance.

Ok, nearly two weeks later.
It was annoying me slightly that `update manager' was coming up with locked access to chromium and Kernel.
(could not enable check-arrow, etc) and only 3 kernel files showing.
But.
It was still pulling updates and allowing me to check them and no other issues.
So.
I disabled the chromium ppa in update manager.
Voila.
All back to normal (minus chromium updates).
I presume I can add another ppa (might go for latest beta)
So all good and still solid as a rock.
Peppermint , it's hard to break , unless you panic.

(this is my familiar recurring reminder that my kernel is 3.1 and don't update to an older one)

my current chromium is
14.0.835.202 (Developer Build 103287 Linux) Built on Ubuntu 11.04, running on Peppermint 2.
This shows as the most recent stable release.

Added beta ppa via terminal:
>
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/beta
sudo apt-get update
>

Checked update manager and all is working ok.
Will either keep current stable release or try

chromium-browser 17.0.963.38~r118053-0ubuntu1~ucd~beta1~natty

So happy that I worked it out and used the cli to do it, this peppermint setup amazes onlookers.
