Donate 1 minute of your time to test upgrades from F36 to F37

Do you want to make Fedora 37 better?

Please spend 1 minute of your time and try to run:

# Run this only if you use default Fedora modules 
# next time you run any DNF command default modules will be enabled again 
LANG=C sudo dnf --releasever=37 --setopt=module_platform_id=platform:f37 --enablerepo=updates-testing $(rpm -q fedora-repos-modular >/dev/null && echo --enablerepo=updates-testing-modular) --assumeno distro-sync

This command does not replace dnf system-upgrade, but it will reveal potential problems. You should also run dnf upgrade --refresh before running this command. If you get this prompt: …

Total download size: XXX M Is this ok [y/N]:

you can answer N and nothing happens, no need to test the actual upgrade.

But very likely you get some dependency problem now. In that case, please report it against the appropriate package. Or against fedora-obsolete-packages if that package should be removed in Fedora 37. Please check existing reports against fedora-obsolete-packages first:

Bug List fedora-obsolete-packages

and also there is already bunch of “Fails to install” (F37FailsToInstall) reports:

F37 Fails To Install


Please respond to the thread on the devel-list since that way the discussion remains in one place. You can respond using the URL above—you will need to login using your FAS same as you do here.

I added prefix

LANG=C

to the above command. Hope you agree that this is a good idea…
