I'm a beginner to Linux. I installed Fedora v.7 a couple months back on a Dell desktop (dual boot with WinXP). I am trying to upgrade to the latest version now and having some problems. I tried to upgrade to Fedora v 10 using yum update, but get the following error: "Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: anaconda-upgrade-install".
I tried to upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 12, but after preupgrade got everything ready I rebooted. Anaconda searched for storage devices and then said "No upgrade root found". What can i do to continue the upgrade manually?
I was trying to update Fedora 14>15 via PreUpgrade. Anaconda was running fine, then after around 2000 upgrade items, it got stuck on the line at the bottom of the photo: "org.freedesktop.ModemManager". This repeats continuously, so I rebooted, but got a kernel panic when I tried to boot back into the old Fedora version (14).
I also tried a rescue boot from DVD, and that failed.
I'm re-posting his thread since the thread that contains a question similar to mine has been marked as solved. I just recently installed Xubuntu PPC on my iMac 800 G4 . . . got "sudo" back working last night, so I ran "sudo update/upgrade/dist-upgrade" . . . and the Console came back with one package to upgrade, but three "held back" . . .
