The Fedora 22 workstation start page is showing a critical update is available for the FireFox Browser however when I look at updates in the Software application it shows no available updates. I know I can do "dnf update" from terminal but I would still like to know why it does not show in the Software app.

The Software application and Dnf may nott use the same repo servers. Some repo servers need more time to mirror the last updates. That often happens with my 2 notebooks under Fedora 22, I don't have the same update at the same moment.

I'm fairly certain that “Software” shows only those updates which have already been downloaded and can be installed off-line. “dnf update” will cheerfully go off and fetch them.
