What should I do with the "packages would changed" Error in Fedora Silverblue?


I ran the command sudo rpm-ostree install -A alacritty, and it completed successfully. When I looked at the last lines, there was an error:

rpm-md repo 'updates-archive' (cached); generated: 2023-01-05T01:30:05Z solvables: 16144

What do I do to resolve this warning? Or is it safe and normal behavior?

This looks like a bug,

which points to another bug

But there isn’t a lot of information regarding resolving the issue in either of them.
