Hey Guys!

I'm currently using Fedora 21 and I wanted to upgrade to Fedora 22 because of security concerns.

I tried to use the command: sudo fedup --network 22 but I got this error: UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 8: ordinal not in range(128)

After googling I found this thread: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

This workaround works fine but now I want to upgrade to the next release and I fear that this problem can harm my system after the reboot.

Does anyone know how I can solve this issue to be save on upgrading to the next release?

best regards,

Thank you for your answer. I really appreciate it! :)

I read the article but I don't think that this problem solves my issue. My concerns are if I start the process and the system reboots to upgrade my system, the locale problem still exists and can harm the upgrade process.

Do you understand what I mean? Or do you think that my concerns are simply groundless?

I do not think it will be an issue, the upgrade process will download all packages needed and once you reboot if you choose the option to execute the upgrade it will process it. Have no experience with that locale issue but do think it will harm your system
