Update manager replacement?

On my current Lenny machine, I have something that appears to
be the Gnome update manager running; I regularly get an orange
box that pops up on my panel that tells me what packages can
be updated, and it handles the updating.

On a new Lenny install, this is not present. I do have
something under System > Administration > Software Sources
that lets me choose how often it should check for updates, but
these don't actually seem to be displayed anywhere.  So I have
to use the Synaptic Package Manager manually.

Am I missing something, or is there a way to get the older
functionality back?
