UEK updates do not register in 'dnf needs-restarting -r'

User_XVGKP Member Posts: 4 Green Ribbon

It seems UEK updates do not register when checking for a required reboot with 'dnf needs-restarting -r'.

[[email protected] ~]# grep uek /var/log/dnf.log

[[email protected] ~]# dnf needs-restarting -r

No core libraries or services have been updated since boot-up.

Reboot should not be necessary.

After a reboot:

[[email protected] ~]# uname -a

Linux 5.4.17-2136.302.7.2.el8uek.x86_64 #2 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:12:52 PST 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Is this working as intended? If so is there an alternative recommended way of checking for a required reboot?
