I'm trying to upgrade to Fedora 20 using ISO (Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-20-1.iso)

$ sudo fedup-cli --iso Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-20-1.iso 
setting up repos...
Error: can't get boot images.
The 'upgradeiso' repo was rejected by yum as invalid.
The given ISO probably isn't an install DVD image.
fedup.media WARNING: umount /tmp/fedup.mnt.uSmD7n failed: umount: /tmp/fedup.mnt.uSmD7n: not mounted

fedup.media WARNING: trying lazy umount
umount: /tmp/fedup.mnt.uSmD7n: not mounte

Thank you.

I'd be surprised that you could do an upgrade with a LiveCD as it doesn't have all the packages available. You probably need to repeat using the full DVD install images, or do a network update with (iirc) fedup --network 20
