Upgrade Fedora 31 to 32 Final Release

This tutorial explains how can you upgrade your system to Fedora 32 (F32) final release. The ISO of Fedora 32 is expected to be available on April 28th, 2020 but the repositories with final packages as on the time of writing the article (April 25th) are already operational. This means you can upgrade to F32 immediately if you want to but if you want to make a clean install of it, then you will have to wait for some time.

Just run the following commands:

1) These commands will download the latest packages for the Fedora 32 and then also download the upgrade plugin if it already does not exist. It will also run the transaction test to make sure the system is upgradeable without any errors.

Note 1: The –allowerasing option in the third command will remove any packages for whom the same does not exist in newer Fedora’s repositories. Take, for example, support for python two has been dropped completely from F32. Also, if it can’t find any regular package at this time, then don’t panic. These packages will show up in a week or two.

Note 2: At the end of the download process, you will be asked to accept keys for different repositories, just say yes for all of them.

Note 3: In the future, if you want to upgrade to Fedora 33, then simply change the number in front of “–releasever” to 33 from 32.

sudo dnf upgrade –refresh
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download –refresh –allowerasing –releasever=32

2) Once the packages have been downloaded, just run this command to reboot and upgrade.

sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

This upgrade process can take some time, so, grab a coffee or have your lunch until the process completes on its own.
