Korora uses Fedora's tools, so upgrading is easy! Here we'll will show you how to upgrade from one release to a new one.
This should work reliably, however you still do so at your own risk (like any upgrade). If this fails, then you will need to perform a re-install so please make sure you've backed up important data.
Contact us on Engage if you have any problems!
There are a few known issues that should be reviewed before proceeding.
Upgrading to the latest release
The upgrade is performed with the help of a plugin to the system's package manager, dnf (previously there was a dedicated tool called FedUp).
When run, dnf will:
- Update your version 25 repositories to point to the 26 release
- Download all the rpms required to upgrade your packages
- Reboot your machine and install them
- Boot into your upgraded system
You can also review the manpage by typing the command -
First, make sure you are running the latest packages for your current version.
sudo dnf --refresh upgrade
Install the dnf system upgrade plugin, in case it's missing (it might already be installed).
sudo dnf install python3-dnf-plugin-system-upgrade (or on older versions) sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
Run the dnf system upgrade command (this will take a while to download all the updates, but you can continue using your machine in the meantime).
sudo dnf --refresh system-upgrade download --releasever=26
If you have an issue and need to restart the system-upgrade remove the '--refresh' option from the command to use packages already downloaded.
Next, tell your system to reboot and perform the upgrade.
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
There may be no display during this part of the process, however the system will install the upgrades and then reboot.
Finally, your system should reboot into the freshly upgraded system.
You're now ready to enjoy your upgraded system.
Optional: Upgrade the Rescue Kernel
This should be left until the upgraded system is tested and works reliably.
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg or for EFI systems sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
