Some problems/questions regarding updates on Silverblue:
- In GNOME Software I sometimes only got the blue “Install all updates” and I could click it, but did not notice it does anything.
When I just tried to reproduce it, however, it worked for some reason…
- rpm-ostree shows me it can apparently enable auto-update:
$ rpm-ostree status State: idle AutomaticUpdates: disabled
- How can I enable automatic updates?
- In GNOME Software I have auto-updates enabled. Apparently, this has nothing to do with that/is not related/does not change this setting. Is anything planned to change this or what?
In GNOME Software on “usual” Fedora’s I had a nice changelog etc. Now on Silverblue, I only saw this (no details for any updates):
rpm-ostree showed me this:

Also no details and no CVEs/security advisories listed, but when running ´rpm-ostree status´ later I was quite surprised to see that it seems to advise me to reboot, because there is an advisory:

Again a problem though: I have no idea what advisory it is, which software it affects etc. It just shows me “there is something”.
Also, again, why does not GNOME Software show this? Why does not show it
rpm-ostree update during the update (maybe changing the last sentence message to more strongly advise to reboot?)
