Upon Release, upgrading Fedora 19 to Fedora 20


Hi Fedora Friends!

I am running Fedora 19 - and would like to upgrade to 20 when it is released on the 17th. What can I do to prepare? (Besides do an image backup) What do I do to effect the upgrade?

I have heard of "FedUp" is that the way to go?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Pentalive.

Each release announcement on the Fedora web site includes a list of supported update mechanisms. Other than that fedup worked for me upgrading from F18 to F19. I should note that as Fedora tends to automate the hell out of things nowadays (see for example the installer) I'm pretty much sure fedup won't work out of the box if you use a deprecated bootloader like LILO or GRUB instead of GRUB2 or if you have another OS in the MBR. That's not to spread FUD but you should do your own research. And making backups before upgrading should indeed be your first reflex IMHO.
