Description of problem:
When updating Fedora Core test2 last night, there was an update to up2date,
which it prompted me to install first and restart.  Good idea.  But I had also
selected "Do not install packages after retrieval", so while it appeared as
though up2date restarted itself with the just-downloaded update, it didn't
(verified with 'rpm -q up2date').  

Unchecking that option permitted the up2date update to install as expected.

This behavior, while understandable, is not obvious to the user as to what is

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.up2date-config: select "Do not install packages after retrieval"
2.run up2date on original Fedora Core test2
3.when prompted to update up2date, OK
4.after up2date restarts, note output of "rpm -q up2date"

Actual Results:  up2date did not get updated

Expected Results:  up2date should have been updated or at least prompted "you
selected the option to not install updates, but install update of up2date and
restart up2date?"  Then really install the update...

current versions should be smart enough to avoid the
self update if it is just downloading.
