I don't have an answer for you question - Fedora 23 is only in Beta, so you may experience package problems if doing an upgrade.

As you're a new user, coming in from Windows, I recommend that you stick to F22 until F23 is officially available. If you're up to the technical challenges of running a Beta release of Fedora, then you should submit a bug through the appropriate channels for this error.

Just wait until F23 has been released (supposedly 11/3), and try the upgrade once again. Or stick to Fedora 22 for a while which is still a pretty modern distribution. Upgrading to a Beta is the next level. I recommend getting used to Fedora first before you do upgrading (which requires backing up your existing system)

You are trying to upgrade to a beta version of Fedora 23. Just before the release, the beta version is frozen, so your existing Fedora 22 packages can happen to be more recent than the Fedora 23 packages, so the upgrade will be confused. If you can't wait for the final release, you can remove the offending packages, upgrade, and then reinstall them from the Fedora 23 repository.

An advice: This is the way I do it. it spares me a lot of time (no trouble shootings) Maybe you will find it handy too. "in near the future" this will cause me some bad karmas. but some will find it very handy.

1: install a new HD (OR replace your HD) 2: install the new version of fedora on the new HD. 3: test everything. IF it's OK, you leave it (and restore data). if NOT re-install the old HD. wait for a stable version. that's it! the price of a new HD is much cheaper and faster then days of trouble shooting.

before you start: backup your data: (a few minutes) backup evolution data (if you are using it): backup homedir OR copy it later from the old drive. backup your firefox bookmarks (if necessary)

No bad karma at all. The way you do it is elegant and pretty safe but requires budget for additional hardware. Not everybody has.
