I like the idea of a previous post, that when an update repo is activated, the 
corresponding regular repo is activated as well.
This could be enforced by automatically activating the regular repo in such a case.

Also when an update is refused, it should always give the reason, instead of 
often (sometimes?) simply saying that it could not be updated.
