Since Fedora 22 or since Plasma 5, there are 2 updater on the system that are looking for updates. The first one is Apper and the second one is in the system tray and called "Software Updates". These two programs have different configuration files. I found out that the system tray "software updater" tool doesn't use apper's config file "~/.kde/share/config/apper".

I don't really see any use case for having 2 programs doing the same thing. But i could be mistaken.

Apper will be, eventually, dropped in favor of Muon Discover.

At some point of time there is going to be Moun Discover for all sort of package management requirements like install, remove, discover, etc. Software Updates is just a widget for your convenience.

I have removed Apper using dnf remove apper and installed Muon using command dnf install muon. I have also set Software Updates to only check update once a week. It's up to you to use it or not. It can be removed from panel just like any other widget.
