Since Fedora 34, I have noticed that Discover has taken the role of the Dnf updater. I decided to give it a try and see how things go.
I don’t like it and would like to know how to use (if possible) the Dnf updater, maybe that is not what it is called, for all previous versions of Fedora that I have used before Fedora 34 KDE, I would be prompted to install updates via dnf. If my terminology is incorrect, my aoplogies.
Now concerning Discover, I find that it Violently kill any running application to inform that updates are available, so whatever I was doing is stopped.
Today in the list of updates, there was the following " google-noto-emoji-color-fonts", along with a couple of other applications.
Discover updated all the other applications, did it usual things of requiring a restart and it sill listed the google-noto fonts to be updated. Clicking on “Update All” does absolutely nothing.
In a terminal I ran sudo dnf check-update
The google-noto font was listed. I performed the update with sudo dnf update
That went well.
Discover is still listing google-noto-emoji-color-fonts as an available update.
This is a long post, almost a rant But in essence I’d like to know how to revert to the old dnf update notifications.
