Running F20/KDE. When the apper notification appears in the task bar
will often run yum from a terminal session to install the updates instead

apper notification goes away.
Today, instead of running yum I ran dnf. The apper notification did not
clear afterwards after waiting a few minutes. Unfortunately at the time I
did not think to wait longer, or time it, and I clicked on "check for
updates" and after a short time the apper notification cleared.
So my question is.... Is there some notification process going on between
yum and apper that isn't implemented between dnf and apper? Or am I just
a victim of an over active imagination?
$ rpm -qi PackageKit-yum-plugin

Summary : Tell PackageKit to check for updates when yum exits
PackageKit-yum-plugin tells PackageKit to check for updates when yum exits.
This way, if you run 'yum update' and install all available updates,
PackageKit will almost instantly update itself to reflect this.
