I have used 'apper' for the 'updating', several times now.
It shows an enormous window..... with nothing in it.... just a moving bar..
So why doesn't it show what it does, like zypper, and yast?
Or is it not finished yet, and we have to wait for the update that it
shows what it does?

Because apper can only show things it knows about. And the zypp developers at
openSUSE did not bother to implement the functionality of telling packagekit
anything about the progress of the download. The download is done by the zypp-
backend, apper is just a frontend.
