What's the difference between terminal and the Software center update processes?


I just did a fresh Fedora 24 install. Then I opened the Software center and told it to update. After a long time of it saying that it was updating, it finished and said that all was updated now. I rebooted and then opened the terminal and did the sudo dnf update command and it found a lot of things to update (more than 700 MB). I updated everything and rebooted. And now if I check the Software center and the Terminal, they both say that all is update.

The question is: Wasn't the Software center supposed to have done all the upgrades the first time? And if it updated anything, how come there were still 700 MB+ of updates when I went to the Terminal?
