there probably is but I wouldn't know which ones off the top of my head.
If you had started the updates instead of asking the question, it would
probably be well on its way to completion. Yes, there were an insane
amount of updates for FC-4 but mostly because it was an aggressive
release that needed a lot of updates to be stable. The payoff is, when
the updates are finished installing, you should have a reasonably
up-to-date and stable system.
