This is the first I've heard of any recommendation like this. If running `dnf upgrade`
from a graphical console is such a big and well-known risk, then why isn't it
mentioned in the dnf documentation? I've posted about this on the dnf Bugzilla.
I'm having a hard time finding anything about this in the Fedora Wiki either. If you
could recommend any particular reading that could explain this some more, I'd
I tried to read every message in this email thread, but I'm still not clear: It seems
the bug that inspired the original post is based on certain graphics hardware, but you
still say it's best not to run system updates from a graphical session at all anyway.
Is most of the risk related specifically to X and the large software stack that runs on
it, or is it simply a problem of numbers, where more running processes means more things
could crash while dnf installs updates? Fedora Workstation users are apparently
recommended to use GNOME Software's reboot/update feature; what's the recommended
way to update all packages on instances of Fedora Server or Fedora Cloud?
