Fedora - How to rebase to Fedora 34 on Silverblue

How to rebase to Fedora 34 on Silverblue

Silverblue is an operating system for your desktop built on Fedora. It’s excellent for daily use, development, and container-based workflows. It offers numerous advantages such as being able to roll back in case of any problems. If you want to update to Fedora 34 on your Silverblue system, this article tells you how. It not only shows you what to do, but also how to revert things if something unforeseen happens.

Prior to actually doing the rebase to Fedora 34, you should apply any pending updates. Enter the following in the terminal:

$ rpm-ostree update

or install updates through GNOME Software and reboot.

Rebasing using GNOME Software


GNOME Software shows you that there is new version of Fedora Silverblue available on the Updates screen.

Fedora 34 is available

First thing you need to do is to download the new image, so click on the Download button. This will take some time. After it’s done you will see that the update is ready to install.

Fedora 34 is ready for installation

Click on the Install button. This step will take only a few moments and the computer will be restarted at the end. After restart you will end up in new and shiny release of Fedora 34. Easy, isn’t it?

Rebasing using terminal


If you prefer to do everything in a terminal, than this next guide is for you.

Rebasing to Fedora 34 using terminal is easy. First, check if the 34 branch is available:

$ ostree remote refs fedora

You should see the following in the output:

fedora:fedora/34/x86_64/silverblue

Next, rebase your system to the Fedora 34 branch.

$ rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/34/x86_64/silverblue

Finally, the last thing to do is restart your computer and boot to Fedora 34.

How to roll back


If anything bad happens—for instance, if you can’t boot to Fedora 34 at all—it’s easy to go back. Pick the previous entry in the GRUB menu at boot (if you don’t see it, try to press ESC during boot), and your system will start in its previous state before switching to Fedora 34. To make this change permanent, use the following command:

$ rpm-ostree rollback

That’s it. Now you know how to rebase Silverblue to Fedora 34 and roll back. So why not do it today?
