    dnf is a fork of yum. Forked to become the NEXT VERSION of yum. It is not something entirely new.
    yum isn't a replacement for rpm. yum is a COMPANION for rpm. A companion that handles repositories of packages and automatically solving conflicts and performing updates.

      It is 2015 and for all rpm based distributions it is still problem to upgrade from one release to next one without some magic!
      It is obvious package type problem if no one can achieve it.
      It is easy to write package manager for dpkg this is why there is so many of them and only two for rpm.

      And it is very ugly when under your name is written for whom you work and to start talk about other distributions. this seems to be your company PR problem

        rpm is for this... and yum is for that ... and dnf is for this.... we all know that.

          1) Upgrades have nothing to do with package format.
          2) If you claim rpm has only two "package managers", you have no clue what you are talking about
          3) The profile info is incorrect and Phoronix refuses to update it. Not my problem.

              I have been using and maintaining 100's of RPM packages for well over a decade and it servers its purpose very well. If you post about something, it would be helpful if you have an understanding about it but that isn't a requirement of course.

                  I fail to see what is "some magic" about;

                  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgra...dora_using_yum

                  Seems like pretty straight-forward instructions.
                  - import new key,
                  - update yum itself,
                  - clean all the crap that might be lurking,
                  - do the update.

                    That info is outdated. Unfortunately Phoronix doesn't let me edit the title under the username.
