I wanna update fedora from 29 to 30 and I used regular commands to update fedora that u can find them in fedoramagazine or other websites listed in google. but I have got an error after I entered:

sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

and fedora answered:

Error: system is not ready for upgrade

I can not find anything related to this error. system is not ready!!!

is there any suggestion or related experience? thanks in advance


Try below sequence(Remember to take backup if something you need)

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=30
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

  • Even after following above steps, if not stop all the services so only upgrade can run over internet. – asktyagi Jul 8 '19 at 10:05
  • Try replacing the third command with: sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=30 --allowerasing – Charlie Parr Aug 30 '19 at 22:52
