Is it possible to upgrade from 18 to 20 on a flash drive rather then the official or so updaters?

Put the installer on your drive, install fresh, restore backups of /home and configuration files?

"jump drive" is a pen drive? Is it configured for persistent storage? Please edit your question and provide info.

Is not possible

The new version of installation manager fedora "anaconda", does not update the old versions. To update you must use online resources like fedup

You can use the command #yum --releasever=20 distro-sync

using Fedup #fedup --network 20

Using Fedup offline download image fedora #fedup-cli --iso /home/<user>/fedora-20.iso Once the preparations have completed, check the fedupdebug.log file if any errors show up in the output from fedup-cli.

If you want to upgrade to fedora 20 Make use of this in the terminal window.

rpm --import https://fedoraproject.org/static/246110C1.txt
yum update yum
yum clean all
yum --releasever=20 distro-sync
