I typically use KDE except when I have to do some things that are broken in KDE such as starting a new Eclipse workspace, due to some graphic components Eclipse uses upon that action that are present in GNOME and not in KDE. So today I went into GNOME after several days to start a new Eclipse project and was surprised that the DE layout was different than before. E.g. the apps are organized in a tree by category in the upper left corner and, unlike before, there is an open app bar at the bottom (which is awesome because the lack thereof was what got me to switch to KDE in the first place).
However, I never performed a system update on request. Since GNOME obviously got changed, without me going to
yum or any other system update tool, I suspect that the OS is configured to do system updates on its own. However, I would still like to be notified of pending updates and be asked to authorize them. How can I view the system update preferences/configuration and change them?
