As of Fedora 18, installer-based upgrades have been replaced by FedUp, which was itself replaced by the DNF_system_upgrade plugin.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 a Fedora system with an encrypted root filesystem from the current stable release (Fedora 40) to the development release (Fedora 41).

How to test

  1. Perform an installation of the previous release (e.g. Fedora 40) with encrypted root (see QA:Testcase Anaconda autopart (encrypted) install)
  2. Do a full system update
  3. Boot the current release (e.g. Fedora 41) using any available means (boot.iso, PXE or DVD.iso)
  4. Select appropriate language and keyboard
  5. When prompted, provide the password for the root filesystem
  6. Select Upgrade an existing installation
  7. Select Create new boot loader configuration to update
  8. After upgrade finished, reboot the system
  9. Login upgraded system and perform some basic desktop operations
    • Open a terminal
    • Open file browser
    • or other system applications

Expected Results

  1. The system should be upgraded to new version without error
  2. The system can boot into new version fedora without error
  3. The opened terminal, file browser, or other system applications should display and work correctly
