Hi All,

I tried to upgrade my Fedora 26 Server PPC64 to version 28 today with the following commands:

Code: Select all

dnf upgrade --refresh
After that I rebooted my AmigaOne.

Code: Select all

dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade

Code: Select all

dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=27 ‐‐allowerasing

Code: Select all

dnf system-upgrade reboot
Output after the reboot:

Code: Select all

Starting system upgrade. This will take a while.
Fedora 27 Server PPC64 boots without any problems. Next step upgrading to Fedora 28 Server PPC64:

Code: Select all

dnf upgrade --refresh
After that I rebooted my AmigaOne.

Code: Select all

dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=28
Output:

Code: Select all

Fedora 28 - ppc64 - Updates 100% [===================================================] 1.5 MB/s | 4.2 MB 00:02
Fedora 28 - ppc64 [===================================================] 1.5 MB/s | 28 MB 00:34
Last medadata expiration check: ...........
Total download size: 1.5 G
DNF will only download packages, install gpg keys, and check the transaction.

Code: Select all

dnf system-upgrade reboot
Output after the reboot:

Code: Select all

Starting system upgrade. This will take a while.
Unfortunately it doesn't boot. :-(

Fedora 27 Server PPC64 boots without any problems but unfortunately Fedora 28 Server PPC64 doesn't boot. It seems there is a systemd problem. You can upgrade to Fedora 27 but I don't recommend you to upgrade to Fedora 28 currently.

Cheers,
Christian

Great news, that you was able to upgrade Fedora to version 27! I haven't tried to upgrade my Fedora to version 29 yet.
