just to add to what Slavek and E. already said, for R14.1 we have decided to drop adept and replace it with some other
application that do a similar job.
Adept is badly broken and continuous changes to apt have made it unworthy keeping patching it up. Better to switch to
some sort of supported applications available in gpl or higher.
One main point for the replacement for update-notifier, but the idea or using a cron job and a small script (thanks
Nikolaus!) sounds like a good temporary solution ;-)
