There seem to have been a number of identical bug reports, so I won't file a new
one; I'll just comment here to let you know that I have the same problem, and to
provide some additional information.

This problem is intermittent.  Sometimes the software updates work properly, but
most of the time they fail, with the following crash dump:
Component: Software Manager
