this appears to still be the case in Octave 7.2.1 (hg id: 24247d13a44b)

octave> pkg install -forge image audio
For information about changes from previous versions of the image package, run 'news image'.

i believe the `pkg update` does show each news prompt though, as the current implementation calls pkg install independently for each package to be updated.

This issue is still present in Octave 4.2.0.

When installing a package with a NEWS file, Octave prints a message about using news

octave> pkg install -forge general
For information about changes from previous versions of the general package, run 'news general'.

However, if several packages are installed at the same time, this message is only displayed for one of them:

octave> pkg install -forge general image
For information about changes from previous versions of the image package, run 'news image'.
