Well, that's a risk that you will have to take. There are lot of things that has to be taken care of (your hardware compatibility & the software's you have currently installed in F19). If I were you, I would do a backup and do a fresh install rather than trying to fix issues after upgrading.

Since Fedora 19 support fedup, you could probably upgrade to fedora 22, only thing is you need to add the switch --product=workstation on the command line. After that run a dnf distro-sync,

Now before you do that check what out side Fedora repos you have and if you have installed some software from them, if you running only Fedora repos you should be ok as long as you have a minimal 500M of boot partition and enough free space on you drive.

But as always do a backup of your home dir.

Hope this help good luck.

OK, I am trying to go from Fedora 19 to 22. I was finally able to get fedup installed but when I run it I get the error.

"Downloading failed: could not verify GPG signature: No public key"

This error is listed in the known issues, but the document says that the solution is to download a file associated with version 20 -- which I can't because I am (to repeat) running 19.

What now?
