ok if i wish to remove it or go back to the default will that be difficult?

Nope:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge mintupdate
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install update-manager
that second command is only necessary if you've unistalled update-manager .. but it won't hurt to run it if you're not sure, it will just tell you you already have the latest version.

OK, for those that are running both mintupdate and update-manager .. if you want to, feel free to uninstall update-manager.

I've been testing mintupdate on its own for a while now and it appears to be fine.

Take your pick between  mintupdate, update-manager, or both .. your choice ;)

so i woke up this morning with updates from both.
the reason why i think i wanna keep both is mint updater had way more updates
and the default one only had one update called 'ubuntu base' but doesn't really tell me
whats in the update mint update shows every single update thats needed.

I want to keep both in case each one has different updates.

"ubuntu base" would have covered the other updates as sub items .. it's just the way it displays things .. but it would have installed exactly the same packages

Still .. your choice :)

Hi iamesperambient, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge update-manager -y
Enter your password if asked and hit enter.

That should do it  ;)!!

update-manager is the default for Ubuntu/Lubuntu/Xubuntu and pretty much any distro based on them

Mint decided to do their own .. but as AndyInMokum suggests they're interchangeable (with a small tweak to the mintupdate package)

They both use the same underlying technology (apt/dpkg) ;)

thanks for the info. I like the shield on my top panel too it kind of keeps me aware at all times if i need to update which at the end of the day was all i wanted.
