As of Fedora 18, installer-based upgrades have been replaced by FedUp, which was itself replaced by the DNF_system_upgrade plugin.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 from the current stable release (Fedora 40) to the development release (Fedora 41) while skipping any updates to the existing bootloader configuration in text mode.

How to test

  1. Perform a default installation of the previous Fedora release (Fedora 40) and verify it works correctly
  2. Do a full system update
  3. Take a note of the bootloader configuration prior to upgrade
  4. Boot the Fedora 41 installer using any available means (boot.iso, PXE or DVD.iso) , passing the command line argument text
  5. After anaconda is started successfully,select default language,keyoard, and then select the system to be upgraded
  6. Select Skip bootloader updating to upgrade
  7. After upgrade finished, examine bootloader configuration, compare to bootloader configuration prior to upgrade
  8. Make any necessary manual changes to bootloader configuration to render system bootable
  9. Boot and test the system

Expected Results

  1. The system should be upgraded to Fedora 41 version without error
  2. The previous bootloader configuration should be left completely untouched, even if it is now invalid (unbootable)
  3. After any necessary manual bootloader re-configuration to render the system bootable again, it should boot and work without problems
