What has happened with dnfdragora?

I am running Cinnamon on Fedora 32.
Until recently I would get a notification that there were some updates to install and I could click on the dnfdragora icon and select 'update' and, lo and behold, a list would appear of packages which had updates available. A few weeks ago, one of those updates was dnfdragora and now the entire gui has changed. The little icon is different, and software is now grouped (which could be an improvement). But when I select 'update' having been notified that there are (say) 18 updates available dnfdragora proudly says 'Empty' and offers zero packages to update.
The only way I can find to apply the updates is to go to a terminal and type "sudo dnf upgrade".
Am I missing something?

Probably not.
I've also noticed some strange behaviour lately, sometimes as you describe...notification of updates then nothing appears.
Most of the time though it does work here, although it is incredibly slow.

I see the same thing Ian, but intermittently. It was aggravating and so I went back to using the command line and doing an update just before shutting down each day.
