Believe me - there about to be a flood of complaints about this.  I
can't wait to see what happens when someone with a more modest machine tries this.

And I don't see any fix for this in any reasonable amount of time.
From a non-UI specialist: it might be a good idea to aim for a maximum
duration before updating a UI like this of 1 second. On a modern
machine, if there aint no activity for more than a second, user's are starting to think "this is probably dead", and getting ready to hit the reset button to fix it.

Dep resolving and transaction testing a 2000~ package update is going
 to take a while.  Plain and simple.
So does the process know how many packages it is going to have to
depsolve ? Perhaps some FB could come from this info ?

This would also apply to the estimated completion period during the actual install; not showing something changing for many minutes is not acceptable - eg 100 minutes showing for 15 minutes is strongly suggestive that something has gone wrong. {and the shutdown dialog that updates only every ten seconds}.

If you have some other's views on regularity of UI feedback, I'd like to hear them.
