Did you ever file any bug reports?
[Bug 455470] System Drops to shell after software update.
it should be fixed in the next image.
I've been renaming "50-udev-default.rules" to "50-ud" after I run
updates and before I restart. This might break something else. I don't
know, but it will reboot.
the initialization program is using a wild card to call 50-udev-default
and the call becomes ambiguous with 50-udev-default.rules in the same
From my experience, the best way to have an updated LiveUSB, is to:
do the "auto login"
create a user for yourself
log out and back in to your account.
this seems to spawn the auto update process
when prompted, click "Update computer now"
let the download and update process happen.
when your system is updated
open a terminal window and run the following command at the prompt:
su -c "mv /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/50-ud"
verify this path, I'm not on Fedora right now.
it should reboot.
hope this helps
