On the Distro, when you login via ssh, you get an immediate status screen indicating if there are pending updates. There is also a check for updates that happens in the background which takes a while to complete. The displayed text is the result of the previous check, not the one that is happening currently on login, so the displayed info is often stale. It can also take a while for the background check to complete, during which time yum is locked.
It seems like a good idea, but the implementation causes more confusion than is solves. I think it should be removed, but wanted to solicit opinions (particularly opposing opinions) before doing so.
