You have the usual array of options. You can download media and boot from it to upgrade. You can run preupgrade. You can perform a yum upgrade. The Installation Guide has step by step details and considerations.

it seemed preupgrade could not find mirror for f15

Code:
# preupgrade-cli 
Loaded plugins: blacklist, langpacks, whiteout
No plugin match for: rpm-warm-cache
No plugin match for: remove-with-leaves
No plugin match for: auto-update-debuginfo
Adding en_US to language list
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
please give a release to try to pre-upgrade to
valid entries include:
   "Fedora 15 (Lovelock)"
[root@fedora ~]# preupgrade-cli "Fedora 15 (Lovelock)"

The short answer is "don't".

Pre-release is for testing/shakeout. It is possibly/likely (still) broken. Why the hell would you risk your working system with an upgrade ?.
Install it (fresh) as a separate test-only system. In my case I happen to use a completely separate box so as not to accidentally compromise my working system(s), but that personal choice/experience.

You could report your situation as a bug, but I doubt you'll get a sympathetic response.

You can try the GUI if you're not trying to upgrade a remote machine. Just 'preupgrade'. If you get the same error, there may be a problem retrieving the mirror list. Try again a in little while.

it seemed that by upgrading it with preupgrade-1.1.9-1.fc14.noarch.rpm does the trick. now i'm running f15a.
