Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

when I type Y, it indicates
Failed to install packages: could not do simulate: The packages are already all installed

Well, I have this box which I use since 4 years to do some POCs for interoperability mainly for web services and integration with some tools like wso2, drupal.....
As I am not a system expert nor a linux expert, I am not able to find a good solution to backup my linux box and then do an upgrade to onther version.
4 years back, I remmeber when upgrading from fedora 12 to 13, a lot of configuration and settings have been changed by the upgrade and needed to redo alot of reconfiguration
Too many unsupported versions to upgrade across which means packages aren't available. You can however resize & create unallocated space to install new OS to, then copy data over to new OS.
After that edit fstab & remove the original OS.
