    1. After fedup fedora from 19 to 20, I did the update work for fedora 20. A lot of duplicate packages came up between 19 and 20, so it didn’t go nicely. Reading a few instructions through google, the follwoing solved the problem for me. (I hope it is helpful for one in the same situation.)
      # setenforce 0
      # yum clean expire-cache
      # yum update selinux-policy\*
      # setenforce 1
      # package-cleanup –orphans
      # package-cleanup –dupes
      # package-cleanup –oldkernel
      # yum update -y

    2. Hello :-)

      If someone don’t like using CLI by finger, I’ve wrote unofficial GUI for FedUP (KFUpgrade) – it can download files for upgrade to F19/20/21 (Alpha). Next Step after GUI is Step 2.6 from Your tutorial – start upgrade in GRUB. I’ve wrote it for myself, but under GPLv3 license and source code is distributed with application, so it’s available for everyone :-)

      To work it only need Java JRE installed (Oracle or OpenJDK) and Xterm (rpm is not avaible at this moment, lack of knowledge how to build it, so depends must be installed manually).

    3. Hello :-)

      New version of my unofficial GUI for FedUp, which simplify upgrade process was released (v1.0.2).

      I’ve added “check for updates” option so keeping with up-to-date is not a problem anymore :-)

      KFUpgrade need only Java JRE installed and Xterm.

      Hope it simplify someone upgrade process :-)

      • Hey K,

        I’m late to the game and updating a few of my laptops lying around. I have almost given up on Fedora releases for Ubuntu because upgrades are a chore / spanking. I’ve tried a couple of your dropbox links and they have since moved or have been deleted in the last year and a half.

        Do you have a new location for your GUI FedUp Update?

        Merry Christmas

        • Hey :-)

          Well…that’s right, in the meantime I’ve moved from Dropbox to SourceForge.

          You need Java (ex. openjdk) to run KFUpgrade. At this point, my GUI allows upgrade to Fedora 22 (which is still supported). Probably Fedora 23 will not be added, because FedUp became…obsolete.

          From Fedora 22, further upgrades are performed by DNF plugin (dnf is yum successor). For Fedora 24, there are official plans to add upgrade option to GNOME Software. Finally – there will be official tool for that :-)

          – Still, You can upgrade to Fedora 22 via KFUpgrade. File is on SourceForge (v1.0.7): http://sourceforge.net/projects/kfupgradeapp/

          – More about upgrading from F22 to F23 (DNF plugin): https://fedoramagazine.org/upgrading-from-fedora-22-to-fedora-23/

          Best regards,

    4. If using Broadcom wireless download the rpm (kmod-wl…blabla…fc20.rpm) and install afterwards using yum localinstall kmod-wl…blabla..fc20.rpm)
      “Native” driver is very slow.
