Optimal frequency of updating

I typically run sudo dnf update and then restart my computer to install updates on a monthly basis. Is this frequency good? Or there is a better choice?

Installing other updates on a monthly basis should be fine.
But important security updates might be worth installing more often:

sudo dnf --security upgrade

The frequency depends on the cost of your security breach or system failure.
I guess that installing security updates on a weekly basis should fit for most desktop users.

Don’t forget that some services require restarting to apply the updates properly:

sudo dnf needs-restarting

Or use offline upgrading.
