Upgrade from F22->F23 partially fails due to broken dependencies on libgit2 and libexiv2
Last modified: 2016-11-24 18:08:55 EST
Description of problem:
Using the plugin to upgrade a machine that used KDE as the desktop resulted in most of the KDE bits not being upgraded to the F23 versions.
Running 'sudo dnf update' afterwards gave a long list of pacakges that were "skipped due to broken dependencies'.
Running "sudo dnf update --allowerasing --best" reported the following broken dependencies:
kf5-ktexteditor-5.15.0-2.fc22.x86_64 requires libgit2.so.22
kf5-kfilemetadata-5.15.0-1.fc22.x86_64 requires libexiv2.so.13
I was able to workaround this problem by running "sudo dnf distro-sync" (thanks to advice received from a helpful colleague).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happened in 100% of the 1 attempts I made.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 18.
2. Update from 18->19->20->21->22 using fedup.
3. sudo dnf update
4. sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
5. sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=23 --best
6. sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
7. sudo dnf update
8. sudo dnf update --best --allowerasing
9. sudo dnf distro-sync
(Steps 3 to 6 come from http://fedoramagazine.org/upgrading-from-fedora-22-to-fedora-23/).
In step 7, "dnf update" reports hundreds of packages skipped to broken dependencies
In step 8, "dnf update --best --allowerasing" reports specific broken dependencies described above.
In step 9, ~550 packages update successfully.
All packages updated successfully in step 6.
This appears to be the same issue reported at http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=307359.
Pelase let me know if there are any log files that would be helpful.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
It's unlikely that anyone will update from F22->F23 now, so let's close this.
