Upgrade Fedora Silverblue 32 when you have rpmfusion packages

Upgrade Fedora Silverblue 32 when you have rpmfusion packages

As with previous article, here is the procedure to upgrade to Fedora 32 if you have RPMFusion installed (same procedure):

  1. Check the repository for Fedora 32 is there:

    sudo ostree remote refs fedora
    
  2. Download rpmfusion repositories:

    wget https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-branched.noarch.rpm
    wget https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-branched.noarch.rpm
    

    (you can omit nonfree)

  3. Update .repo files to next fedora version:

    sudo sed -i.backup 's/\$releasever/32/g' /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion*.repo
    
  4. Start rebasing replacing rpmfusion packages. Here I also removed old packages I don’t use any more and installed docker-compose.

    sudo rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/32/x86_64/silverblue --install docker-compose
    

I also removed git related packages because it caused an error like ``

    Forbidden base package replacements:
      git-core 2.26.0-1.fc32 -> 2.26.2-1.fc32 (updates)
    This likely means that some of your layered packages have requirements on newer or older versions of some base packages. Doing `rpm-ostree cleanup -m` and `rpm-ostree upgrade` first may help. For more details, see: https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-osResolving dependencies... done
    error: Some base packages would be replaced
  1. Restore repo files from backup:

    sudo sh -c ‘for f in /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-*.repo.backup; do mv $f ${f%.backup}; done’
