I'm sorry, but when translated, this either sounds offensive in means
you find my opinion a very poor user experience, or it means user's that
would encounter the above would experience it as poorly...

Kind regards,

In my opinion users should not be required to do this, which is what I
think a poor user experience means: difficult. Clicking pup from the
panel and letting it do the updates automatically is better than
having to search for some dependency work arounds to type into yum.

I want updates to be as easy as possible, for me and all users.
