Well. this time it seems to be very simple :

yum –releasever=13 upgrade

update 22/April/2010:
The key file will not be there so there are two options for you in this case:

  1. Install the following rpms from the downloaded rpms with ”yum –nogpg localinstall”
    a) fedora-release
    b) fedora-release-notes
  2. Run the whole upgrade with –nogpg option.

Issue observed after the upgrade:
The new kernel was not added in the grub menu and I had to manually add the below entry in the <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/gnu_grub" title="GNU GRUB" rel="homepage" href="http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/">menu.lst file:

title <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/fedora" title="Fedora" rel="homepage" href="http://fedoraproject.org/">Fedora (
root (hd0,11)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=f832d6ce-dad3-4af9-9ef1-aac950f8284c rhgb quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 KEYTABLE=us <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/init" title="Init" rel="wikipedia" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Init">init=/sbin/bootchartd

Because of this I was not able to start the X server until I restarted the system with the entry in place and selecting this in the GRUB menu.<h6 class="zemanta-related-title">Related articles by Zemanta <ul class="zemanta-article-ul"> <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://ostatic.com/blog/linux-shedding-indie-status-is-a-good-thing">Linux Shedding Indie Status is a Good Thing (ostatic.com) <div class="zemanta-pixie"><a class="zemanta-pixie-a" title="Reblog this post [with Zemanta]" href="http://reblog.zemanta.com/zemified/46a0147d-93ca-4ebf-bc6f-db9c5841bad7/"><img class="zemanta-pixie-img" src="http://blog.amit-agarwal.co.in/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/reblog_b79.png" alt="Reblog this post [with Zemanta]" /><span class="zem-script more-related more-info pretty-attribution paragraph-reblog">
