Hi, I am trying to use FedUp tool to upgrade to 22, I ran the command fedup --network 22, I got a message that I need to indicate the --Productname (server, desktop, cloud).

Initially, this was a server setup but added many applications through Yum, so the question, if I give server as a product name, will this upgrade all applications setup using Yum? Thanks

I launched fedup --network 22 product-server 5 minutes ago

No luck with the dnf method described below?

florian, I did a "dnf update --refresh", then issued the command "dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade", I get the following "No package dnf-plugin-system-upgrade available Error Nothing to do"

florian, my version is fedora and not , this was a typo error when I started this thread, is it still valid this dnf process for fedora or it is starting from fedora ?

Have you installed a Desktop like Gnome?

I think it's better to use dnf and its upgrade plugin: See here.

This will upgrade all packages.

Yes I have Gnome and KDE. After I issued the command "fedup --network 22 product=server", it started downloading packages after 20 minutes at the end I got the following message:

See Common F21 bugs, section "Didn't install any keys". This issue should have been resolved.

Make sure your system is up to date (sudo yum update) before attempting the upgrade.

And remember this here from the wiki page:

  • Usually, it is best to try first with the latest fedup available in the stable update repository for the release you are running. If you encounter problems with the upgrade, and a newer fedup is available in the updates-testing repository for your current release, you may wish to try with this newer version: yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedup (or dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedup) at the command line.

  • Make sure the system is running a Fedora issued kernel if possible.

@eliassal: You may also try disabling all non-official repos and uninstalling packages from them.
