Fedora OS Upgrades

·126 words·1 min

Just upgraded to Fedora 33 Beta 1 without any issues. I wanted to get the latest Gnome 3.38. Turns out there’s not too much visually different within the scope of my normal usage.

As I always forget the process to upgrade, it is:

  • Make sure all current packages are up-to-date (sudo dnf upgrade --refresh) and the DNF system upgrade plugin is installed (sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade).
  • Run sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=33. Set releasever to the version you’re trying to get to.
  • If everything works out well (there’s no issues with downloading or dependancy conflicts etc) you should be prompted to restart. Run sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot to restart and trigger the upgrade.
  • Cross fingers….

The Fedora upgrade documentation is available at DNF system upgrade.
