Do you have at least one user in the group 'sudo' but run under a
different user?

My user is in the 'sudo' group and gnome-system-monitor shows that my user
is running the update-notifier process.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I think I found the bug. If I start the process in a console with
"update-notifier --debug-updates" I get this output:

(update-notifier:6904): update-DEBUG: update_check()

(update-notifier:6904): update-DEBUG: /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check
returned 9 (security: 0)
(update-notifier:6904): update-DEBUG: error during dbus call: The name
com.ubuntu.SystemService was not provided by any .service files

(update-notifier:6904): update-DEBUG: interval_days from gconf: 0

It shouldn't search for a **ubuntu** service in **debian**.

Hi!
Since GNOME-PackageKit has replaced update-notifier, these old bugs
are no longer valid. If you think they still are, please reopen them,
or, even better, file a new bug against gnome-packagekit.
Kind regards,
    Matthias Klumpp
