Fedora DNF System Upgrade

The article explains how to upgrade a Fedora installation using the DNF. It's based on the Fedora Wiki entry here.

Warnings

Some words of warning.

With all that said, here we go.

Upgrade

The DNF system upgrade is relatively simple. You effectively download the required packages from the new version and install them.

Get the latest updates for your current version and reboot.

sudo dnf upgrade -y --refresh
sudo reboot

Install the dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package and download the updated packages, adjusting the "--releasever=29" to the required destination version.

sudo dnf install -y dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade -y download --refresh --releasever=29

Assuming got all the packages without any problems, you can now upgrade using the following command.

sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

Once complete, log in and check the OS. It's probably worth running the package upgrade again, to see if everything is OK.

sudo cat /etc/os-release
sudo dnf upgrade -y --refresh

Provided nothing has gone wrong, you now have an upgraded Fedora installation.
