I’m trying to upgrade from 29 to 30 (I had already succesfully upgraded from 28 to 29 in the past).
I did all the commands as indicated in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DNF_system_upgrade, downloaded all new packages, and then
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot. No error messages.
However, when rebooting, after typing the disk encryption password, nothing happens. It’s as if I had never typed
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot in the first place. If I retry all upgrade commands, it tells me all packages are already downloaded, and once again I can try
system-upgrade reboot, and rebooting does nothing.
Unless there is an error message very early in the boot process (and it scrolls too fast to be seen), there is nothing indicating why the upgrade doesn’t start.
Is there a way to force an upgrade after logging in? Or to diagnose why the upgrade process is not happening?
By the way, I should mention my system does not start a graphical interface by default. After boot, I type my user/password and then run
startx manually (Nvidia’s fault, don’t ask). But I don’t see why that should prevent the upgrade process from taking place, since it happens before loading X.
