    Fedora 28 upgrade and now everything is disabled.

    Well, I was thinking about trying a new distribution and it seems this may be the time. I upgraded from Fedora 27 to 28 and now it seems most of what I used is disabled. Cinnamon no longer works. Cairo-Dock is disabled. Most of the repositories I used are now disabled and it won't let me re-enable them. This seems to have turned from a pretty decent distribution to an instant piece of ****. Joy.

    unfortunately this can happen occasionally when you upgrade Fedora, sometimes it is better to backup the home folder (especially if not on a separate partition) and do a clean install, then restore files and settings from the backup afterwards. personally I now use manjaro kde as my daily driver and Fedora as a VM to dabble with and keep semi-current with the state of play.
