Error upgrading o 8.2 on fedora 39

What issue or error are you experiencing?

upgrading from 8.1 to 8.2 on fedora 39 i get errors.
I’ve not determined if the upgrade really failed or works at this point.
I’m reporting this issue because there should be no warning/errors during install/upgrade.

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

dnf upgrade local-8.2.0-linux.rpm

no local logs as this was during DNF upgrade.

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @adsf1324

There might be an issue with updating on Fedora relating to some reoccurring problems we’ve noted with this OS. If you want to update you might need to try saving your sites, uninstalling and then reinstalling with steps like these:

You’re also free to remain on a lower version if that works for now. We plan to have some quality of life improvements out for Fedora in the future but no ETA to provide at this time.
