Description Nigel Horne 2011-05-02 10:55:08 EDT
Description of problem:

I don't know which component to mark this against - my best guess is yum, since that's the last command I tried.  If I am wrong please could you point me in the right direction?  Thanks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum upgrade
2. reboot
3. choose upgrade from grub
Actual results:
An error has occurred finding the installation image on your hard drive. Please check you image and try again. 

If I click ok I get:

What partition and directory on that partition holds the installation image? If you don't see the disk drive you're using listed here, press F2 to configure additional devices

It then gives the following options
plus /dev/sdb1 2 and 3

directory holding the boot image: /boot/upgrade/install.img__

I've looked in /boot/upgrade and there is no install.img__ 

Expected results:
Yum should upgrade the system

yum upgrade is not used for upgrading between releases in that way.
Moving to preupgrade (the only thing that could have made that entry in your boot menu, unless you've added it manually)

I didn't change the boot menu, all I did was to type 'yum update' at the command line.

So, you have never run preupgrade?

Comment 4 Nigel Horne 2011-05-06 12:03:45 EDT
No, just 'yum update'.
Comment 5 Elad Alfassa 2011-05-06 12:08:16 EDT
yum update doesn't create that boot menu item.

Comment 6 Nigel Horne 2011-05-06 12:22:07 EDT
Then what did?  It wasn't there, I did yum update, and now it is there.
Comment 7 Elad Alfassa 2011-05-07 13:18:07 EDT
Simply running yum update *does not* upgrade fedora 13 to fedora 14 (for example).
If you want to upgrade, run preupgrade or download the DVD and use it to upgrade.

Closing as NOTABUG.
