Palo Alto: How To See The Update Progress

I went to do a "demo" Palo here recently.  I really do like this firewall.  In getting this firewall ready, my colleague got the license ready on the Palo site (Thanks Jim) and I did the config and downloaded the license and updates.  In trying to figure out where the download and install process was at in the GUI (which you cant), I thought I would find this out in CLI.
 So go into CLI and here is the command you will run to see the progress for the updates:
admin@PA-500>show jobs all
Enqueued                     ID             Type    Status Result Completed
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
2013/09/25 11:11:43           7          Install      PEND   PEND Still Pending
2013/09/25 11:10:57           6          Content       ACT   PEND        10%
2013/09/25 11:10:19           5           Downld       FIN     OK 11:11:28
2013/09/25 11:07:17           4          Install       FIN     OK 11:10:58
2013/09/25 11:05:56           3           Downld       FIN     OK 11:06:09
2013/09/25 11:03:27           2           Commit       FIN     OK 11:04:19
2013/09/25 10:48:07           1          AutoCom       FIN     OK 10:49:32

You will notice the second job being updated and its progress.  See below.  Its better than sitting in the GUI and wondering where its all on the process.
