You can upgrade to the latest version of Fedora manually instead of relying on [application]*dnf system upgrade*. This involves booting the installer as if you were performing a clean installation, letting it detect your existing Fedora system, and overwriting the root partition while preserving data on other partitions and volumes. The same process can also be used to reinstall the system, if you need to. For detailed information, see xref:advanced/Upgrading_Your_Current_System.adoc#sect-upgrading-fedora-manual-reinstall[Manual System Upgrade or Reinstallation].
You can also choose a Fedora _Spin_ featuring favorite alternative desktops or tools for specialized tasks at link:++[].

Using the *Fedora Media Writer* is highly recommended for everybody, because it offers a reliable way to create a live USB stick for Fedora installation.
Use the [command]#dd# utility to write the image.
Use the appropriate utility to verify the image checksum.
Upgrade or Install?
To write the image onto the media, click the red btn:[Write to disk] button.
To setup *Flatpak* on your Linux system, follow the guidelines on the[Flatpak documentation] page.
To install the [application]*Fedora Media Writer* using:
This chapter describes the steps you need take before you begin the installation. Not every step must be strictly followed - for example, if you plan to use the default installation settings, you do not need to gather system information such as disk device labels/UUIDs or network information such as the system's IP address. However, you should still go through this chapter, as it also describes the available types of installation media and how to prepare boot media and installation sources.
These methods circumvent the boot-loader configuration built into Fedora images, which are pre-partitioned and designed to boot on UEFI systems with SecureBoot enabled as well as BIOS systems, and thus they do not produce consistent results with Fedora images, especially on UEFI systems.
The preferred way to upgrade your system is an automatic upgrade using the [application]*dnf system upgrade* utility. For information on performing an automatic upgrade, see link:++[Fedora Wiki dnf system upgrade].
The main selection lets you choose one of the default Fedora editions, Fedora *Workstation* or *Server*. [application]*Fedora Media Writer* displays more details about the edition before you can proceed with downloading the image and the USB creation. You can choose a different architecture, if you select _Other variants_.
The Fedora Project offers different Editions tailored for some specific use cases. Choose the Fedora Edition best for you, or you can build your own by customizing after the installation, or by using a kickstart file as described in xref:advanced/Kickstart_Installations.adoc#sect-kickstart-file-create[Creating a Kickstart File]. Kickstart installation requires the `netinstall` media type, or a direct installation booting method such as PXE; kickstarts are not supported with live images.
