Is this normal? stuck at update

I am more than an hour stuck at 92%. Is it normal or am I experiencing some problem? Is it possible to have more details about what the system is doing?

What update are you referring to?
A manual dnf update?
The automatic update at shutdown?
Update from the software panel?
What kernel?
What desktop?

If it is the gnome software update or the automatic shutdown update then you can not see the progress. If it is the first update after a new install then it could easily take an hour or more dependent upon your download speeds.

I would suggest not interfering with an update since it might be writing to disk and an interruption could cause corruption. Wait at least another hour.

BTW. That is an awful lot of blank space at the beginning of your post.

A manual dnf update gives you all the needed detail.

Sorry. The blank whitespace was supposed to be an image. I restarted my system and now fedora is corrupted. I just want to cry. I am getting an “ops something wrong” after boot. Can’t make anything. Ctrl +D2 F3 F4 doesn’t work. Any thin I can do? Reinstalling from scratch would be an enormous headache since I have many configs in my coding ambient


If you hold shift on startup, you should see the grub menu. Try selecting and older kernel and see if it boots.

If it does you will need to remove the latest installed kernel and reinstall.

Thanks Tom.

This is an important question. Can you please answer it?

In case you have uninstalled plymouth and trying to update Fedora using dnf system-upgrade, the update may be running (and may take very long, depending on your disk hardware and the number of installed packages) without any visual indication.
