Terminal Update Widget
Plasma 5 Various
Score 54%
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 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/usn/xenial/) and KDE Security Notices (https://www.kde.org/info/security/) if you're interested in seeing what triggered a security update.

Last changelog:

v2 - January 22 2017 30 days ago

* Use `apt full-upgrade` instead of `apt upgrade`
* Use a different sound effect when there's packages to autoremove.
* Check for notify-send first and help the user install it. Kubuntu comes preinstalled with this, but KDE Neon doesn't.

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.
