* ... I have occasionally seen PK notifying me about "updates
available", but when trying to download/install the updates, it told me
"0 updates available"

its reboot notification (I was notified about updates being available,
and updated, but haven't rebooted since then - Initially the "reboot
notification button" appeared, meanwhile it's gone).

ladden with many (IMO) discussworthy/questionable "features".
