Comment(by nacin):

 Looking at this further, we already fire all version checks when hitting
 update-core.php. We call wp_version_check(), and themes and plugins are
 both fired through hooks. We also fire the theme update checks when
 hitting themes.php and plugin update checks when hitting plugins.php.

 So really, the most we need to add is a string that says "WordPress just
 checked for updates moments ago." If we were to add a button, all it needs
 to do is refresh the page.
