Description of problem:
When choosing "select packages to update" during a system update, it is unclear
what the checkbox actually does. It would be a lot nicer if one could choose
between three alternatives: UPDATE, LEAVE, and DELETE. (Say, for example, green
checkmark, blue dash, and red trashcan.) Being able to delete a package would
be nice especially when space is tight.
If the currently installed version is the same as the current version, the
UPDATE alternative should either be unavailable or indicated as redundant,
perhaps by putting the green checkmark and blue dash within parenthesis. This
is important, since a missing checkmark right now doesn't explain if it's
missing because the package is already up to date.
