I've recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 with XFCE4.
In my previous install a "updates available" icon would come up in the panel when they were available. Not so now.
I have made sure the Notificiations applet is active. Yes.
And I found something the web suggesting that I use gconf-editor to set (or unset) the update-notifier auto-launch. No differences found with this.
I should add that update-manager is running okay. If I select it from a menu it shows that updates have been dl'd and are ready to install. Just need a notification.

Try using gsettings (or dconf-editor) instead. I believe gconf is deprecated:
gsettings set com.ubuntu.update-notifier auto-launch false
Thanks. That fixes the problem.
