I'm trying to upgrade to Fedora 24 using

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=24 --allowerasing

I'm adding --allowerasing because I'm getting this error if I don't use that argument:

Error: package cairo-infinality-ultimate-1.14.6-1.fc24.x86_64 conflicts with cairo(x86-64) provided by cairo-1.14.6-1.fc24.x86_64.
package fontconfig-devel-2.11.94-6.fc24.x86_64 requires fontconfig(x86-64) = 2.11.94-6.fc24, but none of the providers can be installed
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)

Those errors seem to be resolved when I add --allowerasing. However, system-upgrade now wants to remove kernel, kernel-core, and kernel-modules. Surely I don't want to do this.

How do I make sure these packages are dealt with appropriately?
