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.
