Upgrading to Silverblue 35

Hi. I posted this same question in FedoraForum but got not a single response. I am ready to try Fedora Silverblue 35 beta as an upgrade to FS 34. I want to confirm that the correct command would be

rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/35/x86_64/silverblue

Thanks in advance.

I want to confirm that the correct command would be …

It is more than one command.

The official procedure for updating the system is located at DNF system-upgrade. According to the docs you can also upgrade to F35 using the procedure:

Change the --releasever= number if you want to upgrade to a different release… You can also use 35 to upgrade to a Branched release, or rawhide to upgrade to Rawhide. Note that neither of these two are stable releases.

Thanks for the info. I take upgrading from Fedora regular is not the same as from Silverblue. I think I’ll wait until next weekend to do this veeeeeeery slowly.
Edit: I decided not to wait and everything went fine, except for this error at the very end:

error: Packages not found: rpmfusion-free-release-34-1.noarch

I suppose this is easy to fix, but found no solution as to how to proceed. Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.

2nd edit: this is what I get, in full:

I was finally able to fix it and run Fedora 35 Silverblue. I found this entry:
And applied the following comand, adjusted for Silverblue 35:

rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/35/x86_64/silverblue --uninstall rpmfusion-free-release-34-1.noarch --install https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-branched.noarch.rpm --uninstall rpmfusion-nonfree-release-34-1.noarch --install https://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-branched.noarch.rpm

It worked perfectly and, so far, so good. Hope this helps others.

thanks for that. There really ought to be a silverblue docs page somewhere, with instructions on how to upgrade from one release to another…

and there is…

Thanks for sharing. Better to bookmark it.
