Running the update from 17 to 18 failed after going 67% through, please see .

What can I do now so I'm not stuck with a mixture of 17 and 18?

Have you tried yum-complete-transaction? If that doesn't work, what does /etc/fedora-release have in it? If it says you're running F 18, maybe distro-sync will work.

I don't quite understand this error that occurred during Fedora upgrade.

I did: fedup-cli --network 19, the result is:

Upgrade test failed with the following problems:

insufficient disk space
 need 150M free on / (1.2G free)
fedup ERROR: Upgrade test failed.

It needs 150 M but it states it has 1.2G available. So, is 150M > 1.2G ????

Both system connect each other fine with smb or sftp. What am I missing??
