Updating Fedora 11 is so slow

Hi,
I installed a fresh intallation of Fedora 11 on my Dell laptop and it was super faser system.
The system asked for 240 MB of updated, well no problem, I have a fast connection and it should not be a problem.
Well, the update process takes more than 3 hours and no progress is shown, just a freezed progress bar.
Usually, updating my Ubuntu system takes about 30 minutes.
Is updating a Fedora system an extremely slow process usually?
My friend told it is.
Thanks.

I have no idea, I never really used Fedora.

But try asking your question in a Fedora forum, for example at http://fedoraforum.org/
They will probably know more about Fedora than most people on JavaRanch.

I ran a huge update on my Fedora 11 system yesterday - it took forever and at times it seemed like it just hung (I even restarted it once). I figured that just because I am running Fedora in a VM. It eventually finished the update. I also updated my Kubuntu 8.04 VM, it took probably 1/4 the time, and the download size was similar (several hundred MB).

Yes, it seems that updating a Fedora system is a super slow operation.
Sadly, I like the OS but this point was a stopper for me.
Now, I'm running Arch Linux.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
