Updating fedora 15 to 17
According to the Upgrading topic in the wiki, there was a method where you could put a DVD in your system for the next version of Fedora, and Anaconda would attempt to upgrade your system.
Having tried this method on numerous occasions I would not consider this to be on par with the available in the Debian/Ubuntu distros which actually worked very well.
However, the option ensures that the upgrade will be aborted if there’s an unresolvable dependency issue.
If you’re trying to upgrade an installation of Fedora 22 KDE in a virtual environment, please read the paragraphs after this command block: option, the command worked.
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.

Upgrading all software could mean different things thus it's not aligned well with the question.My understanding is that Mint does not officially support in-place version upgrades; that's why there's no invitation for users to upgrade online, in contrast with Ubuntu's practice; unless something has changed, they recommend a full install.I must say I have never had a Ubuntu (when I was using Ubuntu) or Debian version upgrade go awry.This is a series of commands that you can run to get your machine to Fedora 17 from Fedora 16.
