I get the bug described here when trying to upgrade to Fedora 20 from Fedora 17.
The symptom is that the first stage of upgrade (before rebooting)
works successfully, but when you reboot to complete the upgrade, the
second stage begins but almost immediately aborts and reboots back to
your previous Fedora system.
I have just (re)installed Fedora 19 and am now attempting to upgrade to 20 using fedup. Download of the fedup packages went fine but on booting into the upgrade it drops to a dracut shell, complaining that the root and swap partitions cannot be found.
I have /boot on a Linux RAID 1 partition, and /, swap & the rest in an LVM vg on another RAID 1.
I'm trying to migrate a headless box from f17 to f18 with prior tests on VMs. The process is fine for simple rpm sets. However, when I preload the VM with the 2600 or so RPMs on the actual box, I get an emergency dracut shell after the upgrade process.
On the vm, I can select a different boot kernel and get in.
Previously (5 or 6 months ago?) had done a successful fedup upgrade from 17 to 18. I just tried doing a fedup upgrade from 18 to 19 and it went fine in the first step. Rebooted and allowed it t auto select "System Upgrade (fedup)". It lists a couple things off and then seems to stall.

Can I upgrade FC 19-> 20 by fedup with harddisk encryption?
FC 19 failed to upgrade the kernel. Now i can't use fedup to go to FC 20.
I was updating fc19 when it crashed. it happened it was a kernel upgrade and i was subsequently unable to use that kernel. I am stuck at 3.11.10-200 and wish to upgrade to FC20. Assuming that fedup would work through that issue, i gave it a try and found the same issue persist.
