SUMMARY
***
NOTE: If you are reporting a crash, please try to attach a backtrace with debug symbols.
See https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Debugging/How_to_create_useful_crash_reports
***
I'm using nowadays Fedora with KDE.
To upgrade from a version to another we must use a DNF plugin: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/upgrading/ .
It would be great to be able to update the Fedora version directly from Discover, but I don't know if Discover has the "infrastructure" to be able to do this.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Wait for a new release
2. Try to update from Discover

OBSERVED RESULT
Fail because there is no way

Discover already supports distro upgrades in Neon, Kubuntu, and openSUSE Leap IIRC, but Fedora is not supported yet. Gotta do that.

For reference, there are some notes in the KDE SIG tracker about how this works with GNOME Software:

> openSUSE Leap

Correction:
System upgrades using Discover are not available in openSUSE Leap :(

(I WISH!!! -> https://hackweek.opensuse.org/projects/easy-opensuse-upgrade )

Should I open a bug report for openSUSE as well?
(I don't think it's a good idea cause we'll end up with one bug per distro)

Please do. In fact every distro needs to be individually supported.
