Updated OK.
After reboot:

Turns out officially this is not a security update after all, only a functional one...

Intel has updated their info to state so:

QA Contact: security => (none)
Component: Security => RPM Packages

Comment 9 Brian Rockwell 2023-05-22 23:07:41 CEST
AMD Ryzen 5 5600, GeForce GTX 1050

Installed and rebooted.  No issues found for my usage scenarios.  Working as expected.
Comment 10 Thomas Andrews 2023-05-27 01:39:19 CEST
Foolishness, my old Dell Inspiron 5100, 32-bit P4 processor, 32-bit Xfce. Far removed from Gen7, but the update installed cleanly, and I see no ill effects after the reboot.
Comment 11 Thomas Andrews 2023-06-05 14:09:20 CEST
Normally these types of updates wait for TMB to give the OK and validate, but this one hasn't shown any problems, and hasn't seen any new tests in several days. I'm sending it on. If this is a problem, please reverse the validation.
