    1. Thanks, I skipped the recommended backup and log check. So far all works well. The upgrade, step 2.7, took what seemed for ever; all is well.

    2. Hi,

      Thanks for this. However, I keep getting lots of ‘FAILED’ messages as it scrolls through what I assume are packages it’s trying to download. An example being:

      ‘libnotify -0.7.6-1.fc20.i686.rp FAILED’

      Any ideas? I’ve tried most procedures in the fedora community so am at a bit of a loss at what could be wrong.

      I’m very new to Linux so it’s still all a bit vague to me I’m afraid.


      • Hi Al,

        Do you have Fedora 18 installed?
