      Offline Updates needs a different name. To me that sounds like getting updates from a USB stick, DVD, or some other offline, non-networked source; not applying online, network sourced updates upon reboot (which is a terrific feature to add). The feature is literally "Apply Online Sourced Updates On Reboot" so calling it "Offline Updates" is a bit misleading.

      Update Upon Reboot
      Restart Update Service
      Something Along Those Lines

      I used to live miles from an internet connection and had to drive a laptop and a 2TB USB drive to use apt-mirror to clone Debian mirrors to do actual Offline Updates to a non-networked PC.

        Or you can also add new meanings to existing words for the sake of brevity, like humanity's been doing since the invention of the written word.

          Offline Updates... Looks like non booting Systems because of unresolved dependencies or unexpected existing files ... not sure how they handle it.
          It doesnt mean "online" Updates are good. Specially on rolling realease distributions they cause crashes or unexpected behavior.

            So how do I go about changing the N word to refer to kittens?

              Thank you for the explanation. I was perfectly mislead by the headline.

                Shave your head and tattoo the 14 words in your chest in Fraktur. You can also drink milk or make the OK gesture in social settings.

                  Agreed. I was pretty confused too, and it takes a bit of head-tilting to understand what it means. I thought something like the USB thing too.

                  I'd probably go with "Deferred Updates" though, still two words and kind of explains that updates would still happen later.

                  You use the word as often as you can whenever you see kittens so people get the idea. Don't forget to act naturally when you say it and not explain why so people feel it's already part of the lexicon.
