Incomplete Language Support

i keep getting this window titled "Update Information" with content titled "Incomplete Language Support".  it says:

The language support files for your selected language seem to be incomplete. You can install the missing components by clicking on "Run this action now" and follow the instructions. An active internet connection is required. If you would like to do this at a later time, please use Language Support instead (click the icon at the very right of the top bar and select "System Settings... -> Language Support").

it comes up only in user admin.  i finally tracked the process:

lt2a/root /root 30# wmctrl -l -p
0x00800004 -1 1230   lt2a xfce4-panel
0x01800008  0 1260   lt2a Information available
0x00a00003 -1 1234   lt2a Desktop
0x03400003  9 1454   lt2a Terminal
0x03600003  1 32604  lt2a Terminal
0x03800003  2 323    lt2a Terminal
0x03a00003  3 575    lt2a Terminal
0x03c00003  4 793    lt2a Terminal
0x03e00003  5 1024   lt2a Terminal
0x04000003  6 1284   lt2a Terminal
lt2a/root /root 31# ptb 1260
1260 1213 1106 1089 994 1
  PID TTY      STAT   TIME COMMAND
 1260 ?        Sl     0:07 update-notifier
 1213 ?        Sl     0:00 xfce4-session
 1106 ?        Ss     0:00 /bin/sh /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc -- /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc
 1089 ?        Sl     0:00 lightdm --session-child 12 15
  994 ?        Ssl    0:00 /usr/sbin/lightdm
    1 ?        Ss     0:04 /sbin/init splash
lt2a/root /root 32#

and can see that it comes from update-notifier which is run by xfce4-session.  is this part of Xfce or GUI Desktops in general?  i have tried doing the update it suggests, but it still keeps coming up.  any ideas how to deal with this?

Re: Incomplete Language Support

This looks like an ubuntu process/application. It isn't something that Xfce would do.

Re: Incomplete Language Support

so "update-notifier" is not from xfce and "xfce4-session" just starts whatever is configured (somewhere) to be started at login?  i have user "admin" autostarting at bootup, but i figured out the window comes up as a result of that login.  other userids don't, but they are not expected to be doing package updates.  this thing has been popping for months in both ubuntu+xfce 16.04 and xubuntu 18.04.  i don't know if it would do that without xfce.  google has found a few people getting this and a subset somehow getting it fixed by doing the update action.  i've tried it twice with no luck.

In ubuntu-based distros it is started via Settings Manager > Session and Startup > Autostart Applications. In which case, xfce4-session will kick it off.

Re: Incomplete Language Support

gotcha.  i got it fixed, now.  i tracked it down to a leftover notifier file.  apparently my change from en_BR to en_US didn't go quite right as one point in the past.  because of the way it tests that, i don't know if my language support is really complete, now.
