The same "apt-get dist-upgrade" which works on Debian/Ubuntu just works here 
too (with apt-rpm - I've done several upgrades to the next Fedora release that 
way), as does yum (which is better supported and nowadays also more reliable). 
And don't forget that Anaconda also supports upgrades (for RHEL, "upgrade" 
or "upgradeany" is your friend; you can even switch from RHEL/CentOS to Fedora 
with upgradeany (the opposite will only work properly if your Fedora is 
completely outdated though)).
