Upgrade to Fedora 29

Fedora 29 was released today!  I found instructions on upgrading 27->28, so giving that a try for a 28->29 upgrade.

For the impatient, here are the commands:

  1. sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
  2. sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
  3. sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=29
  4. sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

For the more cautious, see the original post in Fedora Magazine: "Upgrading Fedora 27 to Fedora 28" The instructions abpve are the same, with a minor version change.

    Full disclosure: I'm a Red Hat associate, but not working in the Fedora space and my upgrade is currently 4585 out of 4597 packages complete. Call me an optimist!
