How to test

Note.png
Live Environments
This test is not intended to be run on Live images.
  1. Clean boot the Fedora you wish to test: this could be a system installed from a particular snapshot, pre-release, release, or a cloud image. It should be an image for which updates will be available.
  2. Open a console, and run the command yum update as 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 again with the --skip-broken parameter

Expected Results

  1. yum should complete the update process with no errors
  2. yum should check the appropriate repositories for the release when testing for updates, with no manual configuration required
  3. yum should list the number and details of available updates and await confirmation before proceeding with the actual update process
  4. yum should correctly install all available updates when you confirm that you wish to do so. Note that a failure caused by problems with the packages in the repositories, rather than yum or PackageKit misbehaving, should be reported against the offending package(s) and considered a 'warn', rather than 'fail', if you are performing desktop validation testing
