But be aware that, as in any rolling release, updates may cause issues.
@manuel indeed: Updates may cause issues, but I never experienced them during installation – only after installing & rebooting. And in those cases I really struggled more th 30~45minutes to find out how to download & roll back an old package version in contrast to the convenient „Install these updates“ UI.
I think the point against “unattended updates” is, that it installs something without the user being aware about the specific changes. I think this does not apply to this proposal.
I saw that Antergos now informs you via a new popup that updates may require a reboot. I’m very tidy regarding updates. Everytime I get updates notification (which is always after my first boot-of-the-day) I immediately install them. This caused me quite a few issues when an hour later or so things subtly did not work as expected (like plugging in a USB stick which would not work). The new notification now more or less urges me to do a double boot.
What I’d like to have is, that I can turn on my laptop, review & acknowledge updates when I’m prompted with them but then continue to work. Ideally the update prompt would allow me to say: “Yep – download this set of updates now and remind/ask me shutdown to install them”. Quite similar to the WSUS behavior.
Would Gnome shell allow the required hooks within the shutdown entry?
Stumbled upon exact the same issue. I added a merge request which should fix this issue.
The probiem seems to lie in the initial theme setting Cnchi applies in installing a Cinnamon session.
