This test case tests upgrading from the current release (Fedora 27) to the branched release (Fedora 28) using the Fedup CLI with the default desktop package set and encryption.
How to test
- Perform an installation of the stable release (e.g. Fedora 27) with default partitioning (no less than 500MB for
/boot), selecting the default package set, or using the default live image, and enabling storage encryption during installation.
- Do a full system update and reboot
- Install the latest version of
from the stable or updates repository
- If you are doing pre-release testing, find the installation repository URL for the compose you are testing. If you are testing the current compose, the correct location should be - replace with the correct arch
- Start the upgrade prep by executing:
sudo fedup --network <version> (--instrepo <URL>)
- is the version of Fedora you are upgrading to (currently 28)
- If you are doing pre-release testing, include the parameter, with as the location found in the previous step
- If you need to use a local mirror to test a brand new change, start the upgrade prep by executing the following command:
sudo fedup --network <version> --instrepo <URL> --disablerepo=fedora --repourl fedora-local=<URL-LOCAL>
- is the location of a local fedora repo if needed for faster response speeds

- Reboot the system if
feduphas completed without error
- Once the system reboots, there should be a new entry in the boot menu titled
- Select the option from the boot menu
- The system should boot into the upgrade process and a fedup progress screen should be displayed
- Pressing should switch from the graphical progress screen to the text progress information display
- Once the upgrade process has completed, the system should reboot and an option to boot the new release should be on the grub menu
- Log in to the upgraded system, open a terminal, file browser, or other system applications.
fedupshould run to completion, without error
- The upgrade process should complete and reboot without user assistance beyond selecting
System Upgradefrom the boot menu
- The system should be upgraded to new version without error
- The upgraded system should meet all relevant Fedora Release Criteria
- Accessing the encrypted storage volume(s) should work normally after the upgrade
- Typical desktop applications should display and work correctly
- Running through the desktop test cases would be good for verification
- If you encounter an issue that does not seem related to encryption, perform the simpler QA:Testcase_upgrade_fedup_cli_previous_desktop test case - which is just this test case without encryption - and verify the problem occurs in that case too. If so, consider it a failure of that test case, not this one.
