I am currently using EndeavourOS, but am annoyed by the constant daily updates of 1GB and pacman not installing important dependencies automatically (ex: spell checker for document editor). I like the way Fedora works: you update whenever, important dependencies are downloaded automatically, and packages are recent-ish, but I don’t like that it takes forever to run dnf. I don’t want to use Manjaro (apparently it breaks quickly?), and the distro needs to support KDE. I know about Flatpak, but I don’t want to download 1GB of data for each app. Are there any good options?

(Yes, I can probably deal with Fedora, but dnf is slower than apt, and I don’t want to deal with external repositories for non-free software.)

EDIT: I do not want to tweak or edit configuration files, I just need something that has up to date packages and “just works”.

    I don’t like tweaking my OS, I need something that just works, hence my madness over important dependencies not installing automatically.

      Bruh, if you demand that the OS behaves a particular way, you’re going to have to configure something at some point.

      Its also a lot easier than changing distros…

      If you want something that “just works” don’t use a rolling release type distro or you’re going to have a bad time.
