Upgrade Fedora… manually.

Fedora’s manual (any many other copy-paste blogs, damn) describes the following steps to upgrade system:

sudo dnf update --refresh sudo fedup download --releasever=24 --allowerasing sudo fedup reboot

Guys, don’t worry about “fedup” it’s just an alias script to “dnf system-upgrade”

I did that steps, reboot finished aaaand.. nothing! F23 on the board yet.
Sure, the post not about happy end and easy way (:

To determine python version of dnf you’ll need to run the following command:

$ /usr/libexec/system-python -V

Mine version was 3.4, so, keep in mind that your dnf’s plugins folder could differ.

BTW, I found in the dnf’s plugin /usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/dnf-plugins/system_upgrade.py hidden option ‘–no-reboot’, which allows you prepare system to upgrade without rebooting and of course without starting upgrade process.

The next step is system upgrade. Thanks Fedora’s team to left the option ‘update’ in the plugin, so, the alternative way for me was pretty short:

sudo fedup download --releasever=24 --allowerasing sudo fedup reboot --no-reboot sudo fedup upgrade

The same situation happened when I did upgrade the system from 24th to 25th release.

Don’t give up and HH!
