uaos Now using just only the terminal no problem at any level! It just works.
In my experience, the terminal program
eopkg hangs up part-way through an update about half the times I use it, and I'm sure the developers would like to find a solution. However,
eopkg has a remarkable ability to recover from such an episode. I just use
Ctrl+C to quit the application, and the
Up key to repeat the
eopkg command. It gracefully advances to the place where it stopped, and then continues to completion. I've never needed to restart it more than once.
In most cases, I agree with you and much prefer a good GUI dialog to configure settings, etc. But when it comes to a stalled update, a few quick keypresses at the terminal beats what it takes for a GUI application to recover.
