Syntax for upgrade to f30

I’m trying to upgrade from f29 to f30.

The Software upgrade seems to have failed. It claims to have downloaded the package but, when I click on Install, it says it can’t find the package. The message is:

GDBus.Error.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._pk-2dengine_2derror_2dquark.Code1:Prepared update not found: /var/lib/PackageKit/prepared-upgrade

and, when I look, there is nothing named “prepared-upgrade” in that directory.

I went back to the command line and entered:

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=30

In response I got the following message:
No such command: system-upgrade. Please use /usr/bin/dnf --help
It could be a DNF plugin command, try: “dnf install ‘dnf-command(system-upgrade)’”

So… How does one upgrade to f30? I used to have the directions marked on the old forum, but can’t find them now.

Hello @neverknew. Welcome. When you have time, have a look to #start-here

Talking about your question. I don’t know what to say about gnome-software. I always use the command line.

For the right steps using DNF, have a look to the related Fedora Magazine post.

Let us know how it all turns out.

Additionally, there’s also this quick doc now: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/dnf-system-upgrade/

System seems to have installed okay - it just didn’t update the NVidia drivers. Right now I’m trying to figure out which ones I need for a GTX950.

oops! - It kept saying the NVidia kernel wasn’t loaded so I added some NVidia files (v 418.74) and now I have NO video. sigh
