Weird how it works from the Live session.

First, open a terminal and run this...

sudo alsactl init

Second, try opening pavucontrol (S+v), go to the Output tab and make sure it's not muted. Even if this fixes it, you might find that you have to keep opening pavucontol.

If that's the case, I would uninstall pulseaudio (easily re-installed) and see if alsa "just works"...

sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio pavucontrol && sudo apt-get install alsa-base

Anyway, this package prompts you to upgrade by clicking stuff.  monkey

OK, re: my OP question, I see that libreoffice also has been backported. If I run apt-cache policy libreoffice-writer it shows the candidate as being from jessie (I'm running the alpha ISO here so writer was not installed by default)...

hhh@64bit:~$ apt-cache policy libreoffice-writer
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1:4.3.3-2+deb8u1
  Version table:
     1:5.0.1-2~bpo8+1 0
        100 jessie-backports/main amd64 Packages
     1:4.3.3-2+deb8u1 0
        500 jessie/main amd64 Packages
        500 jessie/updates/main amd64 Packages

So can I assume that pk-update-icon was offered from the backports without targeting it because there is no version available from the stable jessie channel?

Anyway, I started it via gmrun and received a notification just now, about 5-10 minutes after starting it, that bl-welcome has an update. So it works well!

Can anyone tell me if it gets started automatically via gnome-packagekit or do I need to add an entry to autostart?

The lack of an update notification systray icon in BL bothers me, and I noticed that pk-update-icon is now available in jessie backports. So I enabled the source, updated and mistakenly entered apt-get install without '-t backports' and apt is ready to install pk-icon-update. But it shouldn't, I should have to specifically target backports. Can anyone else reproduce this, and do you know what's going on?

@colorpixel, lovely. What's your update notifier and is it available for Debian?

@Dobbie03, Holy cow! Good to see a post from you, mate!

This is going nowhere, closing.

I use Thunar, though I was a big fan of Nautilus for a long time.

@ohnonot, don't worry, I'll switch to a less creepy character soon enough. Coma-Doof Warrior FTW.
