I am sure this is a known issue, but I couldn't find the precise answer. Sorry if this is the case.

I am trying a dnf system-upgrade from my fully updated Fedora 23 to Fedora 26 (or 25, or 24). When I try

dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=26 --allowerasing

dnf tells me:

Install   179 Packages
Upgrade  1614 Packages
Remove      4 Packages
Skip      746 Packages

All but 10 of the 746 skipped packages come from fedora repo itself, not from third parties. The other 10 come from rpmfusion-free. Some of the skipped packages are not important, but some are crucial, like anaconda itself! This is essentially independent of the release version I tried: 24, 25 or 26.

Obviously, this upgrade would led to a half updated and potentially very unstable system.

Why are there so many skipped packages, and how do I fix that? What about a dnf distro-sync --allowerasing PRIOR to the upgrade?

Below is the list of skipped pacakges.

Thanks!

  • Could it be that they're in the same version in both ditributions ? – Pierre-Alain TORET Jul 1 '17 at 19:48
  • @daftaupe: No. For example, I have anaconda-23.19.10-1.fc23 installed, and the one skipped is 26.21.10-1.fc26. – Luis A. Florit Jul 1 '17 at 22:41
  • from fedoraproject.org/wiki/DNF_system_upgrade, they say you have to run sudo dnf upgrade --refresh before, didn't you miss this step ? otherwise maybe some more fedora-specific places like the mailing list or irc might answer better – Pierre-Alain TORET Jul 2 '17 at 19:45
  • That's just to get your system updated first, which mine is. I guess I should ask in other place, as you wrote. – Luis A. Florit Jul 2 '17 at 23:35

    The change from YUM to DNF brought some loss: DNF does not always report why it skips packages. Sometimes you get more info with the --best flag, sometimes you don't. But, anyway, I found that the third party darktable was making some mess preventing lensfun update. Removing darktable solved the issue. – Luis A. Florit Jul 5 '17 at 17:22
