I volunteered to come up with the text if you dont' specify --product.
An initial draft follows:

This installation of Fedora does not belong to a product, so you
must provide the --product=PRODUCTNAME option to specify what product
you want to upgrade to. PRODUCTNAME should be one of:

 workstation: the default Fedora experience for laptops and desktops
 server: the default Fedora experience for servers
 cloud: a base image for use on public and private clouds
 standard: choose this if none of the above apply; in particular choose
   this if you are using an alternate-desktop spin of Fedora

See for more information.

Feedback from this wide audience appreciated. Would you know what option
to pick?
