Closing Pamac without a success message, starting it again to check the status of the updates, wondering about the notifier status, reboot and hoping things will be fine then.
Why? I enjoy the simplicity of GUI updater. If I should want it all, I update via CLI.
Well, depends what you are expecting overall. If a juddery update process is fine for you, okay. However I still have the naive hope Linux can compete with other operation systems some time in the future.
