I assume you've chosen the "reword" route instead of any larger changes, 
for the better or worse (though as Bruno said, it would be great if 5) 
is considered somewhere down the line).

Since this route was chosen, I suggest that we also reword the update 
prompt itself as I feel that is equally responsible for users "freaking 
out". After all, it is literally telling users to contact their sysadmin 
instantly for each update. I propose something along the lines of the 
following patch (though I guess il8n will be a bit of a pain):

Subject: [PATCH] ui: Don't explicitly tell users to contact their 
sysadmin for

The wording used here practically told users to instantly contact their
system administrators for every update. We can reword it to instead to
implicitly suggest that they contact their system administrator if
the update has not been applied for "a relatively long time".
