I got the local sources added. I clicked on the update ! in the graphical
and it has now been 8 hours and the window will not refresh. I do see the
CPU and time growing with ps -ef

root 20072 1 86 13:47 ? 06:25:16 /usr/bin/python
/usr/bin/smart --gui

So I think it may be updating or getting ready to update the system.

Thanks,
