Attempting to upgrade to Fedora 27 beta via dnf fails on my system. I would really like to try the new release...

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=27
Before you continue ensure that your system is fully upgraded by running "dnf --refresh upgrade". Do you want to continue [y/N]: y

 Problem: nss-pem-1.0.3-3.fc26.i686 has inferior architecture
  - nss-pem-1.0.3-3.fc26.x86_64 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
  - problem with installed package nss-pem-1.0.3-3.fc26.i686

How can I fix broken package? Attempting to remove nss-pem tries to take much of the rest of the operating system with it. I am not sure how to proceed.

I think I read that they only released x86_64 Beta at the moment, and apparently you are seeing issues with tome i686 packages. Could you try removing that packed (needed for Steam?) and see what happens. Cheers

I had this problem as well. I was able to get past it by adding the --allowerasing option when trying to update:

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=27 --allowerasing
