an hour was surely exaggerated

but there was not so long ago a bug in some package updateing caches 
which took on a hyperfast RAID10 machine with enabled barriers up to 10 
minutes for a ordinary KDE update

before it got fixid without barriers (which are are default) a few 
seconds - you don't know if and how often such things may get triggered 
inside a update transaction (like the useless ldconfig and systemd 
reloads after every single related package)
