Package: update-notifier-kde
Version: 1.2
Severity: normal

I have received a notification:

There is 2 updates and 2 security updates available

(There was no dot at the end of the sentence, and the verb was "is".)
However, there were only 2 updates available, both of which were security.
So the sentence is misleading.  It would have been better to say:

There are 2 security updates available.

Some suggestion to clearly state the number of available updates:

There is 1 security update available.
There are 4 non-security updates available.
There are 3 updates available, of which 2 are security.
There are 2 security updates and 7 others available.

Best wishes,

        Gábor Braun
