Hello, I used fedora 26 workstation and before six months when fedora 27 was out, i upgraded to her. After that I used commands "dnf update" & "dnf upgrade" and when updates are ended, it's showed me to use command "dnf autoremove". After that my kernel was removed and fedora doesn't want to boot anymore. I tried many methods from google but they doesn't help me. I left the job that way, because I have a lot laptops. But when I saw fedora 28 was out, I remembered for my laptop and now I want to upgrade due fedora 28 and save all my data. Is this is possible?

So you upgraded to f27 and for some reason removed all kernels. If your /home is on a separate partition you can simply install F28 and tell the installer no to format your old /home with all your data. Otherwise boot from a live image, back up all data over an external storage, install F28 (hopefully choosing /home as separate partition) and restore your data when done.

This does not look right

"dnf update" & "dnf upgrade"

dnf update and dnf upgrade is the same thing.

And putting a & between the commands makes both of them run at the same time; the first in background and the second in foreground.
