Hi, I'm trying to run the fedora 23 to 24 upgrade using the gui tool and getting the following error. i've done an update. The first time it gave an error regarding vlc and rpm fusion. i removed vlc, got anothjer error, did dnf clean all...

i have rpm fusion free and non-free for 23 Linux 4.7.2-101.fc23.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 26 15:59:00 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

it would be nice to find the problem instead of ignoring and trying the command line. Here is the error.

Fedora 23 - x86_64 - Updates 3.0 MB/s | 23 MB 00:07
RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Free 2.3 MB/s | 457 kB 00:00
RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Nonfree 1.4 MB/s | 156 kB 00:00
RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Nonfree - Updates 918 kB/s | 67 kB 00:00
RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Free - Updates 2.1 MB/s | 290 kB 00:00
Fedora 23 - x86_64 3.3 MB/s | 43 MB 00:12

Thanks Detailed errors from the package manager follow:

Cannot download l/librtmp-2.4-6.20160224.gitfa8646d.fc24.x86_64.rpm: All mirrors were tried; Last error: Curl error (37): Couldn't read a file:// file for file:///var/cache/PackageKit/24/metadata/rpmfusion-free-updates/l/librtmp-2.4-6.20160224.gitfa8646d.fc24.x86_64.rpm [Couldn't open file /var/cache/PackageKit/24/metadata/rpmfusion-free-updates/l/librtmp-2.4-6.20160224.gitfa8646d.fc24.x86_64.rpm]


PS I clicked that karma > 750 thing without realizing what it did. How do I remove it?

thank you I am thinking that I should remove the f23 external repos, upgrade and then add the f24 ones back.

You better disable external repos, Upgrade with other repos can cause issues so disable them and try again
