It's always a problem to know which version of Fedora is a
"good" one and which is a bum note (hello F14).  In this case,
Fedora 19 is a good one, and Fedora 20 is shaping up to be
even better.

In any case to upgrade from Fedora 17 -> 19 you should use 'fedup'
which is a great little tool that Just Works.  Basically:

  sudo fedup --network 19

and follow the instructions.

For Fedora 16 you'll have to follow the instructions here:


They're a bit tricky, but I've run through them many times and they
do work.
