package information staleness

To find out when your package information was last updated, run:

/bin/ls -l /var/lib/apt/periodic/update-success-stamp|awk '{print $6" "$7}'

Otherwise, have a look at the _get_last_apt_get_update_text function in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/UpdateManager/UpdateManager.py
