Comment (by boonebgorges):

 If I'm understanding the latest patch for that WP ticket correctly, the
 language pack updates are not happening in the background, they're being
 triggered at the end of a separate (plugin/theme/WP) upgrade process,
 which presumably was auto-triggered.

 I'm not a fan of invisible autoupdate like Chrome, but whether or not
 that's the wave of the future, the fact is that this case is much more
 like iOS than like Chrome. Chrome is developed, deployed, and controlled
 by a single entity. The iOS App Store is full of contributions from many
 developers, far more akin to WP plugins, themes, translations. If it does
 turn out that in-the-background updates are instituted for WP more
 generally, then at least the user would not be surprised by having BP
 update language packs automatically. As it stands, this'd be the only part
 in a large system that does something behind the user's back. I find that
 pretty uncomfortable. A one-time prompt would be enough, IMO.
