systemd(1) system daemon what units needed to be
started as part of the software update process. After the main software
update content is applied to the OS, the swupd(1) program starts
this systemd target.
The main function of this target is to allow optional corrections and adjustments to be made after installation that can not easily be made through static file installation methods. This usually applies to things like cached lists, dynamic configuration files and similar volatile databases that are regularly altered and may contain user data.
One example is the dynamic loader cache which needs to be updated when ever there are modifications to the system installed dynamic libraries.
The user is not intended to execute these scripts and plugin units directly. If however so this is desired, one can execute the following command to re-execute all the actions:
systemctl start update-triggers.target
This unit is a
systemd(1) target file.
