Swupd update --no-progress background process running excessively long

As the title says, I’m having problems with swupd: ps -aux shows swupd update --no-progress running in the background for excessive amounts of time (29hrs at the moment).

Any ideas on how to debug or what maybe the cause?

What version of CL are you on currently?

It sound similar to this report:

I’m on version 30820 of clear linux, and swupd version 3.21.0. I’m also running on a dell xps laptop which is the same as the issue you linked. It looks like the issue is fixed in swupd version > 3.21.0.
