I'm still not clear if preupgrade is actually relevant in my case.
I'm running F10-Snap3-i686-Live-KDE (updated).
An update today changed /etc/fedora-release
to "Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)".
As far as I can see, this automatically makes any changes
necessary to upgrade to Fedora-10,
so it is not clear to me what more preupgrade would do.
