    Mine takes like a minute/two minutes to do your average updates. And this on a five year old Core i5 machine. SSD is a must.

    @RememberMe I have an SSD and a Core i7, usualy takes like 3 minutes to update but this update is probably broken (>2 hours for the second time aleredy)

    When you realize that in those 2 hours you could download ubuntu, flash it into your USB drive, live-boot it, install, boot the system, download and install all the updates, configure your entire DEV env and still have like 30 extra minutes for a nap (within the mentioned 2 hours span) :)

    meeeh, but why bother, right? :)

    @WIPocket too bad. It takes <20 minutes for me to install LinuxMint with all the updates :) Another 10 minutes to download iso and prepare bootable usb
