This is not a bash bug and has nothing to do with bash.

I don't use X and hence know very little about gnome-terminal, but an
ordinary terminal (such as xterm) may take a command to execute with

        xterm -e 'dnf check-update --security'

Whether this would work with gnome-terminal, I don't know.  I also don't
know whether at would be able to open a terminal window on your display
from one of its jobs.

Note that this is totally unrelated to whatever shell you happen to be
