It was a general dnf - y update that was slowly getting metadata and had not finished yet
Allright, so you'd expect it to wait until the lock is released, is that right?
Exactly. Wait till what was requested is done
I see now, thanks. I kind of like the current behavior more but let's see how this plays out.
Closing this---the issue has not generated much interest among other users which tells us the current behavior is preferred. A simple shell wrapper could be build that restarts the DNF process after the previous one is finished.
