Unable to upgrade from Fedora 37>38 via software package manager


I am unable to upgrade to F38 due to the following error:
Error running transaction:package: pkdg-fedora-repo-42.0-26.noarch is already installed.

Not sure what I can do ? I have tried doing the upgrade via the terminal but that fails too.

Please follow the steps outlined in https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/dnf-system-upgrade/#sect-performing-system-upgrade

The package mentioned installs a postgres repo, right? Just remove the package and reinstall it after upgrade (or use postgresql from Fedora, see https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-server/services/setup-postgresql/): sudo dnf remove pgdg-fedora-repo-42.0-26.

Please run the four commands one after another and report back with a specific error message.

Also show us the output of dnf repolist, you seem to have set up third party repos that may conflict or not provide f38 packages…

so I ran the command to remove that package

sudo dnf remove pgdg-fedora-repo-42.0-26

and then tried the update via software package manager and all went thru . Replying back to this thread from my F38 :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you!
