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
(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
fedup to know where to look for Beta upgrade files.
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:
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.
fedup-0.7.2-1.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing fedup-0.7.2-1.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
