Well, this sucks. Previous to Discover, Kubuntu was using update-notifier-kde with Muon, but that hasn't been updated in a long, long time. Now they don't use any of the update-notifier codebase and all the notifications are hidden within the stupid plasmoid widget.

So I guess we need update-notifier-gtk or we need to bring update-notifier-kde back.

maybe I could help, since I'm doing the port on the additional driver tab in https://phab.lubuntu.me/T144 this feature should be in software-properties-gtk so it could be ported to software-properties-qt

I thought it was part of software-properties, but is not, is update-manager https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/1:18.10.10
