So the cool thing about Fedora Silverblue? I’m rebasing to the latest Fedora 37 beta now (mostly to play with GNOME 43). If anything goes wrong, I enter one command in terminal and I’m back to the exact latest version of Fedora 36 I was using before :)
If anyone else encounters this while attempting to upgrade from Fedora Silverblue 36 to 37 (beta):
Specifically, to fix this issue:
rpm-ostree update --uninstall rpmfusion-free-release --uninstall rpmfusion-nonfree-release --install rpmfusion-free-release --install rpmfusion-nonfree-release
2. Re-run the rebase:
rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/37/x86_64/silverblue
…aaand, back from the reboot and running on Fedora Silverblue 37 with GNOME 43.
Also, excellent first-run GNOME Software experience on Fedora Silverblue 37. Had about 28 updates listed, everything installed beautifully (with lovely row slide/disappear animations for installed apps).
(There were first-run issues with GNOME Software on Fedora Silverblue 36.)
@aral I tried Silverblue 36 two days ago, and for me it was a very odd experience. I now installed workstation, which gave me decidedly less trouble.
the software center in particular just was too buggy for me.
@claudius It was buggy in 36.
Also, having used it for some time now, I think the conventional wisdom of “always run in a container” is backwards. I should write something about this.
@aral I'm so in love with the Kinoite/Silverblue theory. But I think I need more of that theory becoming practice. I have I have it on a less used X220 though! Have not done a single update yet. 😄
@mikael If you do decide to carry out the update, I’ve added the workaround to the issue I encountered to the comments on the original blog post with instructions here:
