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 :)


So that’s the theory, anyway.

In practice:

error: Could not depsolve transaction; 2 problems detected:
Problem 1: conflicting requests
- nothing provides system-release(36) needed by rpmfusion-free-release-36-1.noarch
Problem 2: conflicting requests


Specifically, to fix this issue:

1. Run:

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

3. Reboot:

systemctl reboot

…aaand, back from the reboot and running on Fedora Silverblue 37 with GNOME 43.

Nice! :)


I have to say, that one little snag aside, that was the easiest/fastest operating system update I’ve ever performed on any operating system ever.

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.
