Invalid /etc/issue file after upgrade
Last modified: 2015-12-07 13:11:37 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading from Fedora 22 to Fedora 23, /etc/issue file does not have the usual contents. It neither has Fedora 22 nor Fedora 23
[me@mydesk]~% cat /etc/issue
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)
Dont know. Have not tried second time.
Steps to Reproduce:
Follow the instructions from https://fedoramagazine.org/upgrading-from-fedora-22-to-fedora-23/ from a Fedora 22 system
cat /etc/issue has invalid data as shown in description above
cat /etc/issue should show Fedora 23 and other information
This makes it difficult to find if the update completed or not
That's the correct /etc/issue file for Fedora 23. Try /etc/os-release or /etc/fedora-release.
