This case tests upgrading a Fedora system from the previous stable release (Fedora 27) to the development release (Rawhide/Fedora 29) using PreUpgrade.

How to test

  1. Perform an installation of the previous stable release (e.g. Fedora 27) with default partitioning (no less than 200MB for /boot). Ensure there are only 1 kernel installed on the system.
  2. Install the newest available version of preupgrade for the respective Fedora release.
  3. Run preupgrade from a command prompt or the Run Application dialog. Provide the requested password for root authorization.
  4. On the Choose desired release screen, enable unstable test releases.
  5. Choose Rawhide from the list of available upgrade targets, then click Apply.
  6. When the process completes, click Reboot.
  7. The system should reboot, perform the upgrade, and reboot into the new system automatically.
  8. Log in to upgraded system, open a terminal, file browser, or other system applications.

Expected Results

  1. The preupgrade utility will run to completion, without error.
  2. The upgrade should complete and reboot without user assistance.
  3. The user is not prompted to address low disk space in /boot
  4. The system should be upgraded to new version without error.
  5. The opened terminal, file browser, or other system applications should display and work correctly.
