No, we use Apper (formerly known as KPackageKit, it's a PackageKit frontend)
It is installed by default on the KDE spin.
FedUp is only used for upgrades to a new release of Fedora.
In the past I have used synaptic, smart, yum, yumex in various updates
within Fedora/KDE. I just tried Apper, which seems to have updated
several packages /without/ provision of the root password; it also said
it hadn't performed a cleanup afterwards.
The root password change seems to have been around for some time; it
surprised me. I note that F20 also has DNF as an alternative to yum.
'We use Apper'? That seems a bit sweeping.
