How to Upgrade Fedora version 33 to 34

 

 

 

 

Upgrade your operating system lets you take advantage of the latest software, security updates, and a host of upgraded features without having to reinstall your operating system. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to upgrade from Fedora 33 to 34.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the current version of the software before we begin.

 

 

# cat /etc/os-release

 





With the dnf upgrade command, upgrades can be performed. Run the following command in a terminal. Fedora 34 will be ready to install after this command refreshes the packages for the new upgrade stream.

 

 

 

 

# sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

 





Run the following command to install the dnf upgrade plugin. This is required for the upgrade process.



# sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade








Run the below command to ensure that your operating system is current and to install any pending updates.



# sudo dnf --refresh upgrade






Run the following command to begin the download process.



# sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=34







To start the actual upgrade, run the following command.



# sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot




After the entire upgrade process completes, the system will automatically reboot. Please be patient since this might take hours depending on your system hardware. Your brand new Fedora 34 installation should be ready within a few minutes.






Let’s verify the current version once again:



# cat /etc/os-release
