The install process does check for updates (if an Internet connection is
available), however they are not installed until the user requests it.  This
is done in order to speed the installation process, as downloading updates
would otherwise be longer than the rest of the installation process

The user is notified of the availability of updates upon their first login,
and can download and install them while exploring or customizing the system.
