You should frequent the Fedora Wiki, there is enough documentation about FedUp and the steps to follow.

The tool to use is fedup. The documentation for the tool is here:

You need to do this as root:

yum install fedup
fedup --network 21 --product=workstation

then go make coffee. It will require a reboot once it's completed the download, then it'll install everything.

Backup your personal files before the upgrade.

I updated this way from 19 to 20 but updating from 20 to 21 completely broke my system -- It was unbootable. I had to reinstall from scratch.
