Ok......

fedora is an os that is in constant update.......every six months or so you NEED to upgrade...... If you dont want to upgrade so often distros like..... Red Hat Enterprise Linux or the free CentOs. .... are recomended. Anyway..... sorry if this seems harsh but fedora should be updated with releases.... in your case i would start with a fresh install..... this isnt windows we dont have the same operating system on our pc's for the life of the pc
