Though the Gnome Software application is installed, I do not use it for getting updates. Instead I use: sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

I Keep it installed because it is convenient for browsing applications. Recently I read that the Gnome Software application downloads update packages and updates the package list for pacman. I want to avoid problems with partial upgrades or other things I haven't thought of yet. My question is; should I implement: gsettings set download-updates false

Thanks in advance for your help on this.

Under the use case you describe, yes, seems to be a good idea to set this key to false.

You could also consider setting allow-updates to false (I guess in that case it doesn't even refresh package metadata)

Thanks for the additional option! I appreciate it.
