Additionally, for people who apply their updates online, this sometimes
results in gnome-software downloading and getting a backup set in the
background, they download and update again, they reboot and off-line
updates tries to apply but finds that things are already updated, and
you get an error on the next boot about things already updated. :)
Of course on-line updaters are perhaps the exception here, and this can
be worked around by simply disabling off-line via the gesettings
setting, but thought I would point it out.
Depends on how you apply them ... you could/should simply use "pkcon
update" it will reuse the metadata and downloads done in the
background but apply them straight away.
