* Start with a fully updated system (at least as far as PK is concerned)
* Run pk-update-viewer, which will say "No updates available"
* Hit the "Refresh" button (note there are only Help, Refresh, and
Close buttons)
* After the check, updates are displayed but the buttons havn't
changed (still just the 3)
* Close the update viewer
* Run pk-update-viewer, you will now see 4 buttons including "Apply"
