Malware?
Only thing it reminds me of is the update centre on Sony devices...

Have you installed Avast for android?
Update Agent may have came from Avast installation, or when Avast asks you to download it for anti-theft protection.
The green icon might be caused by icon corruption.

Yup, Was Avast in my case.
Launch the Avast App, Select 'Setting' (top-right button)
Scroll all the way to the bottom and select 'avast! Anti-Theft removal wizard'.
'Fix Issue' will remove the 'Update Agent' if it is installed.
