Ubuntu is not updating by update manager

I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit several days ago. Then I started update manager and installed a lot of updates... Since then the update manager shows only that "the software on this computer is up to date". How can I fix the problem without the command line? Is it possible to check if updates are available for the system since the day I installed it, is the an internet page where I could check it?
