• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

Today's article has you upgrading Fedora in the terminal...

So, well... If you're not using Fedora this probably isn't of much interest - but 'dnf' does have a pretty sweet feature.


Feedback is great.
 


I think there needs to be more explanation between the difference of dnf update and dnf upgrade.
One updates the current version. One upgrades to the next version.
For update, all you need is dnf update.
For upgrade... there are actually 3 other commands you need to run in a specific order.

dnf upgrade --refresh
dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=36 (or 37, or whatever you are upgrading to)
dnf system-upgrade reboot
 
I figured I'd do an "Upgrade Fedora To A New Version" article down the road.

That would be great, but you may have a typo in your current article.

sudo dnf upgrade

That should probably be... dnf update.
 
Yup. That'll cause some confusion.

'Tis fixed now.
