About an system upgrade while having custom repo's

I'm trying to promote the Linux distributions to make people aware of alternatives for Windows in a home environment. Most of the people spoke of their indifference regarding OSS, and like to have mp3 support, Spotify etc. There are custom repositories for those. However what will happen to those repositories on the machine when Fedora get a new version, but the repositories in question are not up-to-date yet?

If for instance the repositories on the machine get disabled, would they get back up online when the repositories are updated? Or do they have to manually reactivate the repositories?

If you run a system upgrade using dnf upgrade tool it will try to see if those custom repositories work with the new version if they do it will work, if they do not you may need to disable them by hand. How ever if I recall it currectly on my last upgrade from Fedora 24 to 25 I did not have to do that.

Hope this help

So this could be a problem if I try to recommend Fedora to the less tech-savy? Since I'd like people to manage their machines for themselves as much as possible

I don't see as a problem, dnf upgrade normally tell you what to do, it will be an issue if you use gnome software upgrade
