In today post I will show you how to upgrade to Fedora 24 from Fedora 23.
The first thing that we are going to check the current version of Fedora and also apply any patches to the system:
[email protected]:[~]#cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 23 (Twenty Three)
[email protected]:[~]#dnf update -y
After this we will refresh the system:
[email protected]:[~]# dnf upgrade --refresh RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Free - Updates 13 kB/s | 1.3 kB 00:00 RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Nonfree - Updates 11 kB/s | 1.3 kB 00:00 Open source multiplatform video transcoder 239 kB/s | 97 kB 00:00 RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Free 1.3 MB/s | 457 kB 00:00 RPM Fusion for Fedora 23 - Nonfree 652 kB/s | 156 kB 00:00 google-chrome 4.1 kB/s | 3.4 kB 00:00 Dependencies resolved. ============================================================================================================================================================================================= Package Arch Version Repository Size ============================================================================================================================================================================================= Skipping packages with broken dependencies: clusterssh noarch 4.07-1.fc23 updates 147 k nss-sysinit x86_64 3.24.0-1.3.fc23 updates 58 k nss-tools x86_64 3.24.0-1.3.fc23 updates 495 k Transaction Summary ============================================================================================================================================================================================= Skip 3 Packages Nothing to do. Complete!
Now we will install the DNF update plugin:
[email protected]:[~]#dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
Now that everything is upgraded and the upgrade plugin is installed we are going to start the upgrade process:
[email protected]:[~]#dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=24 -y … redacted output … Complete! Download complete! Use 'dnf system-upgrade reboot' to start the upgrade. The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction. You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
If you have a dependency problem you could pass the switch --allowdependency to the previous command.
Now that all the packages are downloaded, the next step on the process will be to reboot the system, this will trigger the FedUp tool to finish the upgrade process.
[email protected]:[~]# dnf system-upgrade reboot
Now the system will restart and the fedup tool will complete the upgrade. This process will take some time.
After the reboot, ssh and check the current version:
[email protected]:[~]#cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 24 (Twenty Four)
All set, enjoy your Fedora 24!
