Error message in Silverblue when upgrading to Fedora 37

I am running on Fedora 36, Gnome 42.4 shell. Wayland.

I got the following error message when I am following the update guide:

Unable to upgrade to Fedora Linux 37:
Could not depsolve transaction; 2 problems detected:
Problem 1: conflicting requests
nothing provides system-release…
Problem2: conflicting requests
nothing provides system-release…

Thank you, I just did that and a vim related error popped up.

Any solutions for this?

Sometimes rpm-ostree gets confused with depsolve issues during a rebase. You can try uninstalling them and then trying the upgrade.

  1. Run rpm-ostree status and note all the packages listed next to LayeredPackages that are related to vim.
  2. Run rpm-ostree uninstall <list of vim packages you found in step 1>
  3. Reboot.
  4. Try upgrade again. Once upgraded to Silverblue 37, reboot.
  5. Run rpm-ostree install <list of vim packages you found in step 1>.
  6. Reboot.

Yup, I uninstalled vim and now it has another error. I apologize if this is annoying. So instead I just followed the terminal instructions provided here.

In conclusion, trust CLI over GUI in linux. The terminal won’t fail to impress.
