It’s my first to upgrade my system in fedora. In last times i downloaded the newer system and install system from scratch.
I heard a lot about you can install system with “FedUp” -> “Fedora Upgrade” tool but i was took a easy road to install newer system by download the CD and put on flash memory and beginning to install system.
I decide to break the rules and use the tool and try on the experiment 🙂
Requirements: Patience and back up your important files.
1- Update system
# yum update -y
2- Find unused config files
# yum install rpmconf; rpmconf -a
# find /etc /var -name '*?.rpm?*'
If nothing appear , go to next step
3- Find and review “unused” packages
# yum install yum-utils; package-cleanup --leaves
Remove the unused packages by
#yum remove package-name-and-version
Iterate this step more than ones to ensure that.
4- Find Install FedUp tool
# yum install fedup
5- upgrade the System
# fedup-cli --network 20
Recommended: make step 5 in command line mode or Text mode by type
# init 3
then after download all packages type #
reboot , After the system reboot select from “boot menu” – System upgrade (Fedup)
