I tried to upgrade from fc33 to fc34 BETA by usage of dnf system-upgrade
which I did successfully
for the last 4 or 5 fedora versions by the usage of that dnf plugin. But
for fc33, I was not successful:
The finalizing command "sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot" did a reboot,
but without the installaton
of the by the dnf command "sudo dnf system-upgrade download
--releasever=34" downloaded pkgs.
My last fc33 kernel is 5.11.11.
Did I forget some required action[s]?
Any help is appreciated.
Fedora release 33 (Thirty Three)

Following up on a broken update that got pushed:
(I'm not naming the package here, as my goal with this discussion is
not to assign blame but to figure out if we can prevent similar issues
- an update is created
- one person upvoted it
- someone noticed it is incomplete (because it relies on a separate
update but was not pushed together -- previous iterations of the same
update, done by a different user, normally bundle these two together).
They left a comment but no negative karma
- two more upvotes so the update got automatically pushed out
- someone else finally provided negative karma but the package is
IIRC we are making progress towards making sure updates are installable
, and block pushes to stable based on that - is that coming soon?
Also, this is the wiki page that describes how to provide feedback to
(it's linked from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Updates_Testing)
It does not seem to have been changed much recently (I fixed a typo,
but the previous update is from 2016).
Should this be linked to from the Bodhi page and/or fedora-easy-karma,
or a succint summary be shown on the web UI and the CLI tool?
After browsing the page, it seems that it is slightly biased in favor
of upvoting and/or leaving neutral feedback -- perhaps the use cases
for providing negative feedback could be made more prominent (e.g.
"negative karma will disable automatic push. If you think the update
might break, do not hesitate to use this - you can always change your
feedback later if you were mistaken".)

I'm very happy to join the team! I've wanted to contribute to open source
for a while and I'm glad I can now.
My name is Linda Okorie. I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I have experience with
Java as well. I'm relatively new to Fedora/Linux but I'm very excited to
get to know more about the project and helping with the QA.
