hi, newbie here . I'm currently using fedora 25 and wanted to upgrade it to fedora 29. Is it advisable to directly jump to newer version or do I have to upgrade it by following the sequence of release i.e. 26 , 27 , 28 and then 29? Please help !

You can try it but it is likely faster and more reliable to do a fresh install

Upgrades across more than two releases are not 'supported', you'll be able to get to f29 in two steps: f25-->f27, f27-->f29
