In the core-auto-updates Slack channel, @karmatosed pointed out that the "Check again" button would benefits to looks like a link and not a button. Indeed, there are many buttons on this screen and this one doesn't have the same place ion the screen hierarchy than the other ones. Moreover, this button is actually… a link. So there is no accessibility issue to make it looks like a link :)

Thanks for making this ticket @audrasjb, it's a great little benefit here to ease the complexity of the screen with numerous buttons.

I attached a screenshot with this patch when no updates are available, just for reference. I think it does still look better to not have two secondary buttons, perhaps especially without a primary button present.

I also traced back through history and this was always a button, so no need to worry that we're undoing a previous decision to make this a button. Will handle commit momentarily.
