How do I upgrade from Fedora 31 cinnamon to Fedora 32 cinnamon?


My Fedora 31 says a new version is available is it as easy to upgrade as Linux Mint 19.2 to 19.3?

I am hosting on the Fedora 31 a website and a shopping cart so I do not want to lose anything.

Is there anything new in Fedora 32 that makes this worthwhile?

Thanks for any help

Fedora has always been well documented; make an effort to check it.
I tend to wait 4-6 weeks to let any gremlins shake out. Personal paranoia.

Thanks for telling me to go somewhere else.

Maybe somebody can give me an answer does it have an upgrade as good as Linux Mint 19.0 upwards?

Seems Fedora is not very upgradeable other wise somebody would say click this and that.

Anyway, I did also ask is it worth upgrading to Fedora 32?

Seems no exciting improvements. It would also be good if it used ext 4 as well.

You are quite, as my old boss would have said, in error.

I have Fedora 31 in a VM.

I just fired it up and opened the software manager. After the software manager had fully loaded, it displayed a dialog box saying "Fedora 32 Now Available." I clicked the "Download" button.

The upgrade process is now underway.

No research on my part was required, just one click on the right button to get things started.

Thanks that is great. It is not showing on my Fedora 31 cinnamon though.

I host my site and email with database and shopping cart so I might clone on a new ssd all my operating systems then on that try to upgrade but still have not seen an upgrade button.
