I installed fedora 24 yesterday, and every time I try to update it, it first downloads all the packages but logs me out automatically at the when it tries to install them.

Please post your output of sudo dnf update -y

If this is the problem I think it is, then X crashes, so he won't be able to copy the output.

How are you trying to install them? From the command line with yum or dnf, or from Software?

This is likely the problem with the systemd-udev update causing X to crash. Does your laptop have hybrid graphics? How are you trying to do the update? In a terminal window or through the Software application? If you are using Software, then use the offline update option. Otherwise, switch to a text console (e.g. CTRL-ALT-F3) and run dnf upgrade systemd\*there.

I wonder how I found this question. I didn't realize how old it was. :-)
