As I typically do, I'm posting my report of the upgrade to the latest
Fedora (now on 29). I started doing this because updating used to be a
little complicated at times, but the Fedora people have made it almost
TOO easy lately. The steps:
1) Make sure you're up-to-date in the current Fedora. (Probably not
strictly necessary unless you're way behind on stuff. Consider it a
recommended measure prior to the actual update operation.)
2) Install the update plugin with "dnf install
dnf-plugin-system-upgrade", if you don't have it already.
3) Download the Fedora 29 files with "dnf system-upgrade download
4) Perform the actual update with "dnf system-upgrade reboot".
I don't know if they could realistically make it any easier.
