I downloaded the Fedora 18 beta using Anaconda, so when the upgrade started and bug appears in Anaconda, so I can't complete the upgrade.

It's hard to know exactly what the issue is here without more details but I figured that I would add some general upgrade info if others find this question after hitting issues during upgrade.

Upgrades are changing a lot with Fedora 18. The old upgrade methods of using the DVD or preupgrade are no longer supported and will not work. The currently recommended upgrade method is FedUp, which is new for Fedora 18. For beta, only the CLI client is completed but we expect to have a GUI client in time for the release of Fedora 18 final.

Current documentation on how to use FedUp and some FAQs is available on the wiki.

If you hit issues with either upgrades or the documentation, please let someone know (probably me) either here, via email (my username at or via IRC in #fedora-qa on Freenode (please direct IRC messages to me, though or I might miss them) .
