When using preupgrade to upgrade an existing Fedora 14 installation to Fedora 15, the following two errors were encountered:
- Failed to fetch release info
- No groups available in any repository
The box sits on a network behind a proxy out to the web.
The resolution was to make sure that environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy are set:
export http_proxy=http://user:password@proxyserver:port export https_proxy=http://user:password@proxyserver:port
Make sure you do this from the user from which you run preupgrade.
The upgrade is kapput. On reboot I get:
The root for the previously installed system was not found
Lots of hits on the bug database but none resolving.
So still stuck on F14 until I get chance to resolve this, probably just a clean install.
I’ve successfully upgraded two other F14 installations to F15 using preupgrade, so the problems above must be unique to the installation in question.
