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.
