Fortunately I can always rely on your help!
But seriously, what exactly do you do after reading through
a list of say 100 updates (by no means unusual in recent times)?
Do you type out the ones you like,
or do you exclude the ones you don't like?
* critical things like systemd, kernel, glibc in a VM first
* install them in two or three stages
* test my main applications after each stage
* logout before apply desktop updates
after years of Fedora you learn which packages affect half of your
system, just run "lsof | grep DEL | grep /usr" regulary after updates
and you get a picture how packages interact with others
