Hi I have downloaded ISO image of fedora 24 and want to upgrade about 20 devices in my office How can I upgrade them using the ISO file without deleting anything* from them.

*I know I can just remove and install root folder and mount home as it was to save my data, but I don't want them too loose their installed applications.

fedup had an option that will accept ISO file address to do this task, but unfortunately fedup has been replaced with "dnf system-upgrade"

I don't think this is possible with an .iso. But you can use one of your computers and set up a local repo, so all other 19 machines get their packages from there...

Which iso did you download? I think the only one that actually has a package repo on it is the Server DVD. But assuming you have a suitable dvd, mount it somewhere (e.g. /mnt) and add --repofrompath dvd,/mnt to the fedup/system-upgrade command line.
