Description of problem:

Reboot after dnf-system-upgrade gives systemd error 'FreezingExecution'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is on a Thinkpad T430 laptop.

How reproducible:

I've seen this error before with 'fedup' a couple of days ago [before it was obseleted by dnf-system-upgrade aswell]. But I was able to reboot back to F22 kernel [and do "fedup --resetbootloader"]

Steps to Reproduce:
[from F22] 
1. fedup --network 23
2. dnf system-upgrade reboot

Actual results:

[transcribing message manually from screen]

systemd[1]: [/etc/systemd/system/system-upgrade-shell.service:8] couldn't unescape assignment, ignoring: TERM=linux ps1=system-upgrade:\w\$\x20
systemd[1]: caught <ABRT dumped core as pid200.
systemd[1]: FreezingExecution

Expected results:

Continue of upgrade process.

Additional info:

Current F23 beta snapshot is: 23_Beta_RC1/Workstation

Comment 1 Will Woods 2015-09-21 18:25:05 UTC
system-upgrade-shell.service only exists in the (now obsolete) upgrade.img that the old fedup uses. So you're still booting the old upgrade boot entry, which we know is broken and useless.

You should delete that boot entry:

  new-kernel-pkg --remove fedup
