There's no such step in the live install (right?).    Now, it would
likely make sense to have such a mechanism, but it would need design.
I forget offhand too how the PackageKit updater works in the live
image (do we disable it by default?).

It's super confusing to discuss installation when we have two wildly
different forms of it; in general I think if we're looking at
improving user experience the right things to focus on are preupgrade
and the live image.
