As a further update I clicked -System-Administration-Update manager from
the toolbar and got the list of updates available.
The 9 available updates consist primarily of 'LIBHAMLIB' utilities and
'man-db -- on-line manual pager.
I have to assume that it is a legitimate request for my admin password
since I am an amateur radio operator and
occasionally run applications that access the libhamlib utilities but I
want to be absolutely certain before I do these updates.
