How to enable software package update icon?

asked 2017-05-18 21:51:33 -0500

I have used Linux Mint Cinnamon. I am now using Fedora Cinnamon. Linux Mint Cinnamon has a panel icon in the horizontal taskbar that changes color and symbol when there are package updates are available.

Then I would click on the panel icon, and choose which software package I want to update from the pop up application.

Is there similar tool I can use for Fedora.

If not, how else can I get "package updates are available" message, but I do not want to update them automatically, and then how to go about updating those "new" packages?

on the settings section, there is an option for package manager or DNF. Its a GUI used to handle updates instead of using the CLI. Open that and at the top right there's 3 lines like a hamburger. Click that on and click on preferences. There is options in there for notification.

It is the Package management icon in System Settings. After clicking "Preferences", I click "Show toolbar in window headerbar" then click OK. And I did not see a package icon in the horizontal taskbar / panel. What else do I need to do?

I went to Yum Extender and still could not find an answer. So here is my question.... After clicking "Preferences", I see a "Select update at startup" option.
What does "Select update at startup" option means?
