Posting some specifics about what happens after you download and try to install would be useful. Exactly what happens when you try to install.

do not even bother on fedora 20

22 was released last week SO in LESS THAN 30 DAYS fedora 20 will be

--- END OF LIFE ---
there will be NO support of any kind after the very LAST update

install fedora 22 THEN install "PostInstallerF"
https://github.com/kuboosoft/postinstallerf

BUT there is going to be a BIG PROBLEM!!!!!
fedora deprecated yum
it is not used any more. DNF is the new tool

Dangermouses script is a good tool

but you never RAN THE PROGRAM!!!!

if you do not run the program after it is installed then -- well nothing will be done

Sorry, but this makes absolutely no sense. If you installed Fedora 20, then you can VERY OBVIOUSLY install Fedora 22. Do the same thing you did before.

And as you were asked before, you have provided no details...such as what kind of machine.

You can upgrade your existing system

If you have network you don't need to download just follow the upgrade guide.

If you have network then just change your mirrors to point to 21.
No need to download & burn anything.

Did you install fedup?
If so what are the errors?
