Additionally having maintained RHEL, Fedora & Cent OS systems for over the past decade, I would never even consider using this method for anything. So typically people would do one of the following: Use the Rawhide release, which is the bleeding edge version, similar to how Sid is in Debian.
Rawhide offers rolling releases in the sense that it always has the latest versions of packages, but it's by no means meant to be used as a day to day distro, it's really meant only for testing.
A new release of Fedora is out again so it is time to check out the upgrade. The upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 is almost exactly like the upgrade to Fedora 8.Here are the steps you need to do the upgrade from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9: As someone points out in the comments there is a new facility to do upgrades that you can install. A message in Gnome popped up that my system requires important updates.Upgrading all software could mean different things thus it's not aligned well with the question.I tried everything i could think of including yum and downloading the tar files and then trying to install it manually. Otherwise you need to back up the home directory somewhere else first.
Upgrading from 8 probably mostly works, but I always find that upgrades leave some things broken in subtle ways and these are difficult to find and fix afterwards.
Using this plugin will make your upgrade to Fedora 26 simple and easy.
Before you do anything, you will want to make sure you have the latest software for Fedora 25 before beginning the upgrade process.
Now, the message has disappeared, and I cannot find it, not any software it might have been connected with. In Gnome 3, go to activities and do a search for "software update" (or find it in your list of applications). I would suggest changing title of this question so that it better matched the question which is being concerned specifically with upgrading from one release to another.
I dismissed it, as the only option it had presented me with was "Install updates", and I wasn't quite sure what would that do. But, there is a GUI software manager, if you'd like to use it.
