<SOLVED> UM applet still indicates "Updates available"

Regarding the update of 2014-12-04, it unusually indicated that a pre upgrade must be performed in the terminal by executing the command "sudo apt install ure inxi". I executed this command as instructed and the two applications and Libre Office (4.3.3.2) were successfully installed and/or updated.

However after closing the UM the applet still indicates that "There are updates available". Rebooting did not change this status. I therefore clicked again on the UM applet and the same page appeared again, with the instructions to execute the command for the pre upgrade (see below).

Of course executing this command showed that the two applications are already the latest version, but the UM applet still indicates that "There are updates available" :(

You probably have one or more packages held back. Please, check this topic: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5039

Thank you for your reply.

Here is the result of the suggested command:
sudo apt-get -s dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
iceweasel libjasper1
2 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Inst libjasper1 [1.900.1-13] (1.900.1-13+deb7u1 Debian-Security:7.0/stable [amd64])
Inst iceweasel [31.2.0esr-3~deb7u1] (31.3.0esr-1~deb7u1 Debian-Security:7.0/stable [amd64])
Conf libjasper1 (1.900.1-13+deb7u1 Debian-Security:7.0/stable [amd64])
Conf iceweasel (31.3.0esr-1~deb7u1 Debian-Security:7.0/stable [amd64])
Unlike the post you referred there was no "kept back" package, but two updates.

So I isssued "sudo apt-get upgrade" and it upgraded iceweasel and libjasper1.

The UM applet stills showed that "Updates are available". So I add my dinner and when I returned about an hour later the applet now indicates "Your system is up to date"! However, when I run the UM again, it still shows the previous page with the pre upgrade info despite the fact that the UM show as check mark.
