Running Fedora 35 KDE Plasma Want to upgrade to Fedora 36 - Linux beginner

An additional VM manager that is easy to install is QEMU/KVM which involves installing libvirt and qemu. All parts of that are in the fedora repos and will allow you to build a VM for almost any OS and hardware.

To me there are quirks in Boxes that cause problems and sometimes VirtualBox also has issues.

That’s right, I forgot. :+1:

There is also a graphical application for Qemu that makes it easier to use.
I have always worked with it.

dnf info aqemu

That fits then also in the QT desktop

in reply, i will most likely disable rpmfusion - free to avoid the 50-100 updates it does every time I turn on my computer and enable again down the road thanks for that.

Ive tried both VirtualBox and Boxes and both performed horrendously bad even after maxing out their respected allowances the other in is CLi based is it not I tried setting that up but I may need to goole a walk through so I can complete the linux course I bought that is de based.

I’m aware the CompTIA A+ wont have much if any linux in it but the PBQ’s dont hardly scare me as much. The linux course I was doing on the side to learn well, linux, but thats come on hold as I was having difficulties finding a proper way to run Ubuntu as it required and as noted above.

The A+ im doing for career advancement (currently Customer Service Rep for Verizon) but with an A+ I could begin my journey to hopefully sometime down the line as I learn, seek mentor-ship, and complete certification enter into database management. Yes its a long way to go from creating a thread asking for steps to do a simple system update to managing databases but but my career projection is long as well and every single day im learning more.

Thanks for everyone’s help.

Hmmmmm

That is far different from my long time experience. It does far far fewer updates than the normal fedora repos IME.

Exactly, @ozzieken maybe those updates aren’t installed (update fails and gets retried on every reboot) or this is some leftover information in Discover, while updates were already installed with dnf? What does sudo dnf dsync output?

dependencies resolved
nothing to do
complete!

on a side not I just had a really good talk with a recruiter for an entry level IT position, my next one is going to be with the actual director ovr micrsoft Teams whats the easiest way to get that up and running on my laptop with fedora? Should I just check and see if there is a flatpak available?

I did not tell you to disable or delete rpmfusion.
I just wanted to address it because this process (upgrading from version to version) is handled differently in distributions.
In OpenSuse, third party vendors must be disabled because the package manager can not handle them and this can lead to an unusable system.

With Fedora this is probably better solved as mentioned above.

All this does not affect the normal update between versions. Rpmfusion is necessary for restricted formats (audio/video)!

Whether teams works I can not say but is available as a flatpack. If there are problems with it just open a new thread.

Try running:

pkcon refresh force -c -1
pkcon repair -pv

okay I will right now, Something I am noticing is that when I open my cli to run my updates its running some the same day after day after day. zit says basically in laymans terms {XXXXX36---->XXXXXX36} i will post what i mean directly from the cli, in the right format hopefully so its legible like Jeff v pointed out above in a moment. Ill run those commands right now and attept to do the same first though.

Under the flatpak update this the 3rd time I have run “flatpak update” and it does these same updates every time.

I also ran the two commands you suggested and the results are above obviously. Its a bit over my head.
“pkcon refresh force -c -1” seemed to do the same as what i run each morning “sudo pkcon refresh force”
“$ pkcon repair -pv” results went right over my head if you could explain what tht command did I’d appreciate it.

For flatpak issues try running flatpak repair && flatpak update && flatpak uninstall --unused

-c -1 additionally disabled cache to make sure it does not interfere, you don’t need this option everyday.
For details on what commands do, look through manual, e.g. man pkcon
When you open it, press / to start a search, type repair and press enter. Pressing n jumps to next match, N to previous.

If you have some issue unrelated to this topic (35->36 upgrade), start a new one.
