Qubes Update Doesn't Show Progress

Continuing the discussion from Understanding "Qubes Updater":

I think you overlooked to click the “Details” in the middle left Qubes Update window tool

Thanks for splitting!

The thing is, details show the result, but not the progress. The “progress” is just like “updating dom0”. It would be nice to see, whats going on and how much % are already done. Sure, there are much important things to do. It would be just a nice extra, for better understanding.

The reason why it’s like that is because the updater uses a technology called saltstack which is known for lack of feedback to the user while things are progressing.

This is something the developers are aware of, I think (couldn’t find the associated issue, though).
