Description Jens Petersen 2012-11-30 09:04:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently (at the time of F18 Beta) it seems necessary to
explicitly set instrep:


to do an update to F18 Beta.

It would be better if fedup new about test releases.
eg supported say "fedup-cli --network 18-beta".

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to upgrade to f18 beta
# fedup-cli --instrepo 18
Actual results:
(1131/1131): zlib-1.2.7-9.fc18.x86_64.rpm                |  88 kB     00:00     
getting boot images...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/fedup-cli", line 285, in <module>
  File "/bin/fedup-cli", line 236, in main
    raise NotImplementedError("use --instrepo or --skipkernel")
NotImplementedError: use --instrepo or --skipkernel

Expected results:
fedup to know where to look for Beta upgrade files.

Additional info:
It would be better if fedup downloaded the instrepo images first before downloading all the packages...

That URL isn't right - it doesn't point to a repo with the upgrade.img in it.

I assume you were getting that from the release notes - I've already talked to the docs team about getting it fixed but the instructions on the wiki should be up to date:

Comment 2 Will Woods 2012-12-17 23:38:20 UTC
Should be fixed in git, now that the mirrormanager changes are live:

  1) fedup-0.7.2 downloads instrepo stuff before packages, and
  2) it should be able to find instrepo without user intervention.
