In the Extension Manager window, click "Check for Updates".
If all goes well, you see in the Description part of the Extension Update window the 
"No descriptions available for this extension."

In fact there is nothing missing ! It only means that there is no error or dependency 

Either we should see the (localized) description text of the extension if all is OK, 
or it should display instead a positive message like "Extension update is available".

dv: We should tackle this for 3.3. Many users stumbling over the misleading
message, which in fact sounds like an error.

I think, there are several ways to fix this. My take: I consider the
"Description" caption of the update dialog as misleading. The related text filed
is used to display the result of the update request (no updates avail, updates
avail and no errors, updates avail and errors). I can imagine to change
"Description" to "Result" and "No description available." to "No errors.",
