Strange System Update


#1

The update manager just told me to apply the updates - the system would reboot.
After clicking update, the system got to the stage where you can take a look at the updating process via ALT-F2 but it was finished the same moment I hit ALT-F2.
The system only rebooted once and is up and running again. (I am writing this on that system.)
The update log is telling me:

pc-updatemanager: Fri Jul 20 20:17:03 CEST 2018

The warning doesn’t sound very promising.

The about command is showing a brand new boot environment:

Because of the extremely rapid process and only one reboot I am in doubt this being a real update.
