Insight: Tutorial for Upgrading Fedora 30 to Fedora 31
Fedora 31 is the latest version of Fedora operating system which is now available for the download. In this post, we are going to guide you to upgrade your Fedora 30 to Fedora 31.
Upgrading Fedora 30 to Fedora 31
We will use the dnf upgrade plugin to upgrade to Fedora 31.
1. Update software and back up your system
Before you do start the upgrade process, make sure you have the latest software for Fedora 30. To update your software, enter the following command in a terminal.
sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
2. Install the DNF plugin
Next, open a terminal and type the following command to install the dnf plugin:
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
3. Start the update with DNF
Start upgrading process by using the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=31
Note: If you have issues when upgrading because of packages without updates, broken dependencies, or retired packages, add the ‐‐allowerasing flag when typing the above command.
Reboot and upgrade
Once the previous command finishes downloading all of the upgrades, your system will be ready for rebooting. To boot your system into the upgrade process, type the following command in a terminal:
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
With the dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package, your system reboots into the current kernel installed for Fedora 30; this is normal. Shortly after the kernel selection screen, your system begins the upgrade process. Once it finishes, your system will restart and you’ll be able to log in to the Fedora 31 system.
