I've never used the GNOME Software app until now. Does it not provide a progress indicator when you tell it to perform an update?

I'm trying the GNOME Software method of updating things on Fedora (as opposed to dnf all the things like I usually do), and I'm not really enjoying the experience of the forced downtime during the reboot stage. But I suppose the process is no worse than all the other horrible computer systems people have to use, and it's easier to explain to somebody whose first language is not computer.

(I'm pretty sure my first language is now computer, much to my chagrin.)

@cstanhope My non-geek friends seem to prefer synaptic to anything else. Even something more flashy and modern looking like the kde neon 'discover' s/w center.
That is the ones who dare to do anything at all needing sudo.
