Hello all,

I recently installed F25 using the netinstall image. I specifically opted for this way as I expected the installer to automatically download the latest versions of packages, thus saving me the hassle of having to download one month's worth of updates.

Installation went smooth and quick. But imagine my surprise when after booting up the system for the first time and Software reported almost 700 MB of updates pending installation!

What is the point of netinstall then, if it uses outdated packages? Even so, can't a "download updates while installing" option be implemented?

Cheers S.
