When the super admin clicks on the "My Updates" links, the system keeps showing the same entry:  "your answer commented 21 hours ago by anonymous".

The super admin goes to the question, the comment is already answered by the super admin.

Why is the message keep showing?

Based on your question, I guess you're assuming the My updates section is some kind of notification system.
 
However, it is just a list of questions in which you have taken some action: adding a comment, answering, favoriting, etc. That action binds you to that question so that changes to the relevant post generate an update for you (unless you're the user performing those changes), in this case "your answer commented".
 
Now, the fact that you have already browsed the My updates doesn't mean they will go away. That page displays the chronologically ordered post updates that are relevant to you, not a notification inbox. If you're after the latter behavior you can give a try to the free on-site notifications plugin: http://www.question2answer.org/qa/33712

Ok I see. It seems the core is not adding an event to the My Updates section if you have modified it yourself. The first one, you have selected it yourself so it is not telling you it because you already know. The second one you have answered Dimitros so he is the one with the update "your question answered". In the third case you are again operating in the question by adding an answer, so you would be notifying Alen but he is not a registered user so he can't see that. The last one is the same as the second one. The only way you will get an update is if Dimitros accepts your answer or posts a comment in it.

Is it clearer now?

Hello

I have not modified the core in a way that would affect this behaviour.

I am sorry, I do not follow you.  Are you saying there is a valid reason why I am not seeing those in the "My updates"?

In your first answer you said:"it is just a list of questions in which you have taken some action: adding a comment, answering, favoriting, etc."

So I presented a list of questions that user vbaskos was somehow involved, but they do not appear in the "My Updates" of user vbaskos.

There is a valid reason: that is how the core works and it makes a lot of sense.

What I said in my answer is correct but I hadn't mentioned that the core does not notify you of your own changes, as you already know about them (you're the one performing those changes, why would you be notified of them?).

What you don't know is what actions OTHER USERS are performing on those posts in which you are involved. That is what the My Updates section is there for. I've added a small clarification to the answer in brackets

aahh, now I get it.

So "My Updates" is a list of questions that I have been involved and AFTER this there was some action from others".

Actually your initial answer was clear enough:
"it is just a list of questions in which you have taken some action: adding a comment, answering, favoriting, etc. That action binds you to that question so that changes to the relevant post generate an update for you (unless you're the user performing those changes), in this case "your answer commented"."

Somehow I overlooked the second part.

Thank you.
