Well what are they there for, then?
You can use all of its nice features for doing other things.
Like what? I thought that the only thing dnf does is update the system. Oh,
yeah, sure you can query metadata on available packages too.
you update the system, all you want is...an updated system. pkcon and
GNOME's offline update flow achieve that just fine.
Hmmm… Right now, running "pkcon get-updates" claims "There are no updates
available at this time.", meanwhile "dnf upgrade" shows 68 packages that
be updated. "pkcon refresh" doesn't change anything.
