How to update Fedora via the terminal

If you come from a distribution like Ubuntu, you are used to “sudo apt update“.
Updating Fedora is quite similar; instead of ‘apt’, use ‘dnf‘. To begin, open your terminal and type:

If all you need is an update, you can also execute ‘sudo dnf update’ first. Additionally, you can utilize Gnome Software to update your system as well. Using the terminal tends to be quicker since it doesn’t require a reboot (unless desired).

How to speed up dnf

To achieve faster downloads, you need to modify two lines in the dnf.conf file, which is best done through the terminal. Begin by typing this command into your terminal:

Once the dnf.conf file opens, use the down arrow key to navigate to the bottom and add these two lines (you can copy and paste):

To save the file with the new changes, press:

  1. Ctl X (the Control and X key)
  2. y (the y key to say “yes”
  3. Press Enter

Bonus tip: Additionally, add the line defaultyes=True above the previous two lines. This will prevent you from having to confirm Y (yes) all the time. However, be cautious and verify your actions before pressing Enter.”

The Gnome Tweaks tool simplifies implementing a new icon theme or changing available icon and shell themes. Since it’s not installed by default, you can install it using this command in the terminal:

After installation, locate Tweaks among your installed applications by pressing the “Super (Windows) key and typing ‘tweaks’ into the search field at the top.”

How to install git

To install Git, a version control system widely used for managing code from repositories like GitHub (including AI software), type this command into your terminal:
