Is there a notification for app and system software updates

I'm new to Zorin OS. Is there a notification that shows new app and system's software needs to be updated? Currently I go into System Tools -> Software Updater, but I would like to see a notice on my desktop.

You should get an automatically notify when updates are available.


Actually the quickest way to check and install update is simple 2 lines in your terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Much faster than clicking around or waiting for the automatic notification.


Where are the automatic notifications located? Thanks.

Check the update's Settings (Software Update Application) and click its settings.


I'm using KDE and Discover notifies me with a little pop-up square bottom right of screen. However, I feel Apper is much better than Discover in respect of KDE (Plasma) Desktop Environment.
