I myself prefer a fresh install on each release, though I tend to
every second release.
Rather that install over the old system, I typically install into a
partition separate from the old one, so both old and new systems are
bootable, and accessible from each other, for a period of time. Home
and data partition are separate to root.
The last time I did this I did not use a bootable disk (USB) to
install, but use the DNF running on the old system to install the new
system onto the new partition! Quite an experience, some quirks, but

Thanks for posting this. I do the same thing as you do mostly, but
leave the old version around in case there are future problems. A lot
easier to diagnose things from a working system. I used BFO last time,
though I've also used rsync and updated to rawhide, and the network
install from the server release. Your technique should make it dead
simple to install the new release with no risk. I look forward to
using it. Not this cycle, I'm already on F25, and I have rawhide
installed for F26, so probably F27.
