Change from Fedora 26 to Fedora 27

On Corpus Christi some colleagues must work, because the bank holiday is not in whole Germany. I have free after I had to work on other days between a bank holiday and a weekend. In German you call it: „Brückentag“

The End of Life (EOL) of Fedora 26 began yesterday and I don’t have a unsafe operating system on my pc. In my thoughts there was an option to change completely to Debian 9 on this pc but then I had to install it completely new.

I decided to change from Fedora 26 to Fedora 27. On the last time I did the way over the command line (my favourite tool) from Fedora 25 to Fedora 26 and this time I did it, too.

The changing looks like an normal upgrade of your packages.

You have to download all the packages and then it installs it.

The important order is:

dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=27

and the second:

Message (in German) before installing the packages


dnf system-upgrade reboot

that’s all. The operating system takes over all your settings.

Of course before you do it, you must do your backup of your data. I never have been problems with my data but it would not be amiss to safe all your data on an external drive.

I had to wait two hours. It is a short time. Why? You need not install everything once after a normal installation. If you do a normal installation from a disk or flash drive you must install afterwards all your favourite programs.

With the Fedora 27 the kernel version 4.16.12-200 was installed. Fedora 26 had installed the kernel 4.16.11-100 in the last days.

And in Fedora 27 I have LibreOffice 5.4.
