Having said the above, I rarely have to do that.
And this is exactly why the default is to do offline updates.
Which, would mean, in my case, and many others, that updates wouldn't
get done. And I intensely dislike the lazy approach of "we'll just
make you reboot," rather than work out how to do an update that doesn't
needed it. This isn't Windows.

There is no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see

America, you've had a Bush show you that any idiot can become president,
don't let a Trump prove that any asshole can.
