I don’t know if this is the right place to discuss it, but I have a suggestion to next Pamac versions and I can’t find a better place to place that, and me thinks a new conversation is too much for what it is:
Yesterday, when I was doing the regular update that went well here on Cinnamon, I noticed some of the updates were Pamac related. As every other software Pamac is regularly updated to correct bugs that can make some problems on the users installations. My suggestion would be to make Pamac (and other package installer/updater related packages) updates to be prioritized in such a way that users can not proceed to the other regular updates without installing those Pamac updates and restart it in the newer version.
Forgive me if that was suggested anywhere else and have a nice day!
I don’t know how things are right now, but in the 19.x series, Linux Mint did that also. Once there was an installer update, that would to be the “highlighted” update. No proceed to the next updates without doing the updater one!.. Oh, well!.. Different way of working apparently!.. Forgive the inconvenience and have a nice day!..
