Upgrading Fedora 24 to 25

Yesterday I began the upgrade process, from a terminal window using dnf. The process did not complete, as there were some files that could not be found in their repositories. About 2000 of about 2400 were updated before the process ground to a halt with mirror error after mirror error. I assume I will be able to resolve this issue, but the process did raise two questions I would like to ask here:

1) Can you just upgrade the system and not each package installed?

2) If my system is x86-64, why is the upgrade process installing i686 files? This happened repeatedly, making me suspect it was a huge waste of time.

Thanks for any replies. -CH-

Have you tried the upgrade method mentioned here : https://fedoramagazine.org/upgrading-...

Did you install packages from repos other than fedora & rpm fusion ?

re: 1.) Upgrading the system means upgrading each package installed. So, answer is no.

A good idea is to disable all third-party repos before upgrading. When you say the process stopped. Do you mean the download process or the actual upgrade process? I am assuming you are talking about the download only. So, just re-initiate the upgrade process. Here are the instructions for an upgrade process using dnf.
