Query latest updates in Linux via RPM (YUM)

rpm -qa --qf '%{INSTALLTIME} %{INSTALLTIME:date}: %-40{NAME} %{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' | sort -n  | cut -d' ' -f2-
{InstallTime:Date}               {NAME}                                   {VERSION}-{RELEASE}.{ARCH}

This queries all your installed RPM packages (rpm -qa) and prints them using a format (--qf) with the time of installation first in seconds since the epoch(%{INSTALLTIME}). The result is sorted by the first time field, and then that time field is removed.

%-40{NAME} Package Name (40 characters, left justified)
%{VERSION} Version
%{RELEASE} Release
%{ARCH} Architecture (e.g. 64 bit or 32 bit)
