Some packages could take years to update.

about Chocolatey · Feb 2017 ·, for example, is 4.0.6, while at the moment there is 4.0.13. Double Commander is 0.7.7, while at the moment it is 0.7.8. NAPS2 is 0.3.0, while at the moment it is 0.3.3. etc etc. That's the main problem with it.

Another problem is source of installations. Chocolatey only saves scripts. Apps are downloaded from 3rd party sites. Things could change, yet Chocolatey scripts won't update.

New ChocolateyGUI (kind of Synaptic Package Manager for Chocolatey) isn't practical either. Too much graphics and uncomfortable UI.
