 > it seems that it would be far more usable if it was one single button

 Absolutely!  A single button leads to a simpler UI.  If I'm polling the
 server for updates, I want it to be quick ... not three separate actions
 when one would suffice.

 And as far as which ''n'' to display, I'd err on the side of the largest
 one.  If you just checked for plug-in updates, but haven't checked for
 core or themes in 3 hours, there's no problem in saying "WordPress checked
 for updates 3 hours ago."

 On the other hand, if you last checked core and themes 3 hours ago and
 plug-ins 1 hour ago, saying "WordPress checked for updates 1 hour ago"
 would be very misleading.
