Whether the updates are done 'offline' or not has only little relation
to how often we check for available updates and notify the user.

The logic I recently implemented for gnome-software 3.12 in F21 is to
check for new updates once per day, and download updates when they are
important (e.g. security updates), or when it has been a week since the
last time we installed updates. When a consistent set of updates has
been downloaded, we notify the user about available updates.
