This test case tests whether the system can be updated using the default console package manager.
How to test
- Clean boot the Fedora you wish to test: this could be a system installed from a particular snapshot, pre-release, or release, or a live image. It should be an image for which updates will be available (or you can downgrade a package after installation).
- Open a console, and run the command
dnf updateas root. If you have any difficulty opening a console in the normal fashion from the desktop you are testing, note this, but continue with the test. Complete the update process. If you encounter dependency problems, ensure a bug is reported for the issue, and try with a different package.
- If there are no packages to update (you're running the latest version of everything), you can enable updates-testing repository (if not enabled already), or you can downgrade some package to an older version (either from the fedora repository, or by directly downloading it from Koji).
- The update process should complete successfully. Errors caused by packaging bugs should be reported to the individual packages, but would not usually count as release-blocking bugs in the updater itself.
