The first thing I would try is Synaptic instead of Software Updater.
Set it to Sections and then Upgradable. This should give you a list of
what Ubuntu wants to update.
Failing that, at the command line try some of these:
sudo apt-get clean
deletes the cache
sudo apt-get update
fetches the list of available updates
sudo apt-get upgrade
upgrades the current packages
upgrades to 16.10 or 18.04
