For the point releases, the images are updated so that fresh installs will be completely up to date.

You are getting updates for more than the OS. You are getting updates for every application you installed from the repositories. That include your OS, email app, browser app, multi-media apps, and so on

To put things into another perspective, you are seeing a lot of updates because the people who are writing the programs actually care and actually have a great amount of passion in the things they do. To this end, they fix every bug they can find before someone can even exploit it.

bugs get found, bugs get fixed...

Yum has been obsoleted by dnf so you need to run command like

sudo dnf update -y

Good luck

hi, i feel your pain. updating from an original ISO install will d/l around 1GB. Look at the first answer from leigh123linux, there are updated isos available.

Netinstall images (x86_64) are also neat: You download only what you really need, and you download the newest version of those packages!
