The timer in main.qml has "triggeredOnStart: true" so it already
checks when the applet runs if the condition to check for updates
is true and if so, it calls PkUpdates.checkUpdates.
Previously, if a user configures the applet so that it only checks
for updates weekly, the applet ignores this configuration and
forces a check for updates every time the user logs in the system
(even more than once per day)
