Description:

Requires plasma-discover to be installed. Uses apt commands to update (KDE Neon / Kubuntu).

Clicking the "Update" button will instead open Konsole with the output of apt list --upgradeable, prompting you to run sudo apt full-upgrade.

1. After installing, right click the "triangle" in the system tray, then click "System Tray Settings".
2. Uncheck "Updates"
3. Check "Updates (Terminal)"

The widget also links to the Ubuntu (https://usn.ubuntu.com/releases/ubuntu-16.04-lts/) and KDE Security Notices (https://www.kde.org/info/security/) if you're interested in seeing what triggered a security update.
Last changelog:

v3 - March 13 2018 2 months ago

* Fix position of update status text (should of been above the button).
* Show button to open /var/log/apt/history.log
* Use the Oxygen-*.ogg instead of KDE-*.ogg sounds. With KDE Neon, plasma-desktop depends on oxygen-sounds, but doesn't depend on kde-runtime-data which ships the KDE-*.ogg sounds.
* Fix Ubuntu 16.04 Security Notices link as the old link 404s.

"notify-send command not found" ?

The script will prompt you to install libnotify-bin if it's not already installed. KDE Neon does not ship with it, but Kubuntu does.
The notify-send command is used to send a notification when updates have finished installing.

The scripts are in:
~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.github.zren.terminalupdate/contents/scripts/

If you want to modify them.

Two small issues:
1) Right after installation on my KDE neon there was no "Updates (Terminal)" in System Tray Settings, thought i could add to panel as separate widget. After logout and login though "Updates (Terminal)" appeared and one can follow 3-steps instruction above.
2) After update process i occurred an error message. There was unknown command in script: "notify-send". You need to manually install "libnotify-bin" package and everything works fine.
