nonsense when i read the bugreport

* system-upgrade now uses dnf (standard "dnf update" approach)

THAT is the problem and i really wonder what somebody thinks by 
implement it that way after *many years* of "yum --releasever=XX 
distro-sync" works absolutely relieable

* change "dnf update" mode during system upgrade to
   "dnf distro-sync --allowerasing"

THAT is the right direction but nonsense because --allowerasing is a 
terrible idea, anyways "dnf --releasever=XX distro-sync" is not affected 
by both wrong solutions as far as i see (expect DNF is intentionally or 
unintenioally broken elsewhere there)
