Fedora 31 is officially released and available for download. We can upgrade to version 31 using the command line method or graphical upgrade method on the workstation.
Upgrade Fedora 30 to Fedora 31
Use graphical methods
- Launch GNOME software application or select software from GNOME Shell
- Select the Update tab in the GNOME software, and the screen will prompt you that Fedora 31 is available
- If no updates are available, wait for a while and then try to reload the button.
- If an update is found, download the upgrade package and restart the system from the GNOME software to complete the upgrade.
Using the command line
Step 1: Back up your system and update software
Back up all necessary data and proceed with the upgrade, please use the following command to continue
sudo dnf upgrade-refresh
Step 2: Install the DNF plugin
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
Step 3: Upgrade the system to Fedora 31
Now that the data has been backed up, the DNF plugin has been installed, and the system has been updated, we can now start the upgrade using the following command
sudo dnf system upgrade download –releasever = 31
Note: If you find any issues during the upgrade (such as broken dependencies), the retired package will add the –alloweras flag to the command
Step 4: Upgrade completed
Once the above command has downloaded all the updates, restart your system
sudo dnf system upgrade restart
Note: If you encounter any problems during the upgrade, please visit the DNF System Upgrade Quick Documentation for more information on troubleshooting.
