How to configure auto updates with the dnf in Fedora Linux

The dnf is a free and open source to install, remove and update packages on a Fedora Linux. This blog post explains how to auto update and install security patches on a Fedora Linux.

Applying software updates can be time consuming, and your time is often better spent on just about anything else. Except that you also has to stay on top of security and stability updates. Here is how you can find equilibrium by having Fedora Workstation or Server to automatically download, and optionally install, updates as they become available.

Fedora don’t enable auto-updates by default, but it’s quick and easy to configure fully automated or just automated security updates. If you’re using RPM Fusion or other third-party repositories, you may not want to use auto-updates because of potential problems with proprietary firmware and other updates.
