If you’re a GNOME Shell user who took fancy to the ‘Update Manager Indicator’ we featured last Friday and want something similar for your own system then you’re in luck!

The similarly named Update Indicator brings update alert functionality to the GNOME desktop, along with quick access links to ‘refresh and install’ options.
