An improved version of the Red Hat Update Agent is now

the end of each update run. In addition, a summary of the run is

version also makes the “Abort” button much more responsive than it
was previously, corrects password problems, and fixes several other
smaller bugs.

which the Update Agent determined should be skipped was displayed
before determining if the packages were actually present on the
updates server.
