Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1260319
Fedup from 22 to 23-Beta-TC1 does not boot
Last modified: 2015-09-08 11:07:07 EDT
Description of problem:
After trying to fedup from 22 to 23-Beta-TC1 on x86_64 the boot is broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Computer does not boot, can't check fedup version, but the computer had all updates installed on 5th of September.
I haven't tried multiple times, breaking the boot once was enough
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute fedup --network 23 --instrepo http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/23_Beta_TC1
2. After the upgrade is prepared, reboot
Computer does not boot
Fedora is updated
I see the following kernel log instead of booting (not very verbose):
systemd: [/etc/systemd/system/system-upgrade-shell.service:8] Couldn't unescape assignment, ignoring: TERM=linux PS1=system-upgrade:\w\$\x20
systemd: Caught <ABRT>, dumped core as pid 194
systemd: Freezing execution
fedup is broken and unfixable; it's been deprecated and is being replaced with the `dnf system-upgrade` plugin. This is mentioned on the Common Bugs page:
See https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/DNF_System_Upgrades for details on the replacement.
