I was trying to upgrade to Fedora 16 (I had f14) using preupgrade. However, it fails at the end (after saying: preparing transaction from installation source) and gives the following error:

A fatal error occurred when installing the file system package. This could indicate errors when reading the installation media.Installation cannot continue.

  • Might be a faulty DVD. Did you run mediacheck on it?

Skipping releases is not allowed. Besides, F16 is EOL. Backup and perform a clean install. What you're trying to do is unsupported, sorry.

  • And install Fedora 18, or (if Fedora's release cycle is too fast) consider <centos.org> for example (clone of RHEL, is handled similarly to Fedora, and has a much longer life).
