View Full Version : Offline Updates and encrypted installs

While I get the rationale behind offline updates (less pointless bug reports, more stability from applying updates outside of the user session etc.), I'm a bit irritated by the fact that this makes me reboot twice every time, having to enter the password of my encrypted install twice as well in the process.

I guess there's no way around that if I use offline updates, but just to clarify: If I manually do a
dnf update and reboot, am I getting exactly the same result with one reboot as with offline updates, or do offline updates give me something more that a
dnf update can't? I know I'm not the target group as I'm not a developer, but I'm still curious. ;)

cheers,
