Unhappy updates ubuntu 16.04

The last time got several 'base or basic' updates, where no technical description comes up, clicking on it. with others, 'security' there is quite a lot to download re. kernel. Because I have trouble starting up thunderbird, after PC startup, have to wait till the icon disappears at left site desktop and only then have access to thunderbird.
Am worried what can be wrong, Have an Asus desktop with only Linux OS.
Who can inform me about this
many thanks,

A more detailed description is needed.

After downloading the updates, it takes a while to install them.

But: a description of the updates is usually delivired.

I would ask on a ubuntu forum for that.

I had trouble with some updates for Suse Leap 42.1 lately.

For further investigation begin with that

1. check the background servies with systemctl -all

And post the output here.
