As of Fedora 18, installer-based upgrades have been replaced by FedUp, which was itself replaced by the DNF_system_upgrade plugin. See Category:Upgrade_system.


This case tests upgrading from the current stable release (Fedora 38) to the development release (Fedora 39) while using the default bootloader configuration option in text mode.

How to test

  1. Perform a default installation of the previous Fedora release (Fedora 38)
  2. Do a full system update
  3. Boot the Fedora 39 installer using any available means (boot.iso, PXE or DVD.iso) , passing the command line argument text
  4. After anaconda is started successfully, select default language and keyboard layout, and then select the system to be upgraded
  5. Accept whichever bootloader configuration option is the default
  6. After upgrade finished, reboot the system
  7. Login upgraded system and perform some basic operations

Expected Results

  1. The system should be upgraded to Fedora 39 version without error
  2. The system should be able to boot into the new Fedora version without error
  3. The system applications should work correctly
