(original message here [1])

I didn't received many feedbacks about this and I'm thinking to send a bug
report (wishlist) proposing the changes highlighted above.

What concerns me the most here is apper. Summarising:
- apper should be dead upstream 
- plasma-discover is too bugged to be used as a replacement
- update-notifications don't seem to work with both (at least for me)
- what about muon?
- synaptic seems to be the only sane alternative but doesn't provide
- pk-update-icon provides update-notifications but depends on gnome-packagekit

Despite the integration with the Plasma desktop I think it is essential to 
provide (also) a good graphical package manager with update-notifications. What 
do you think about it?
