As of Mageia 6, when you attempt an upgrade via the classical installer, it will ask you if you *want* to configure network media.
Not enabling them is not supported and will most of the time result in a broken upgrade, as there aren't enough packages on the installation media to do a full upgrade.
We should therefore stop asking users, and simply *request* that they configure network media. If such media can't be configured (network not working), then the upgrade should be prevented.
But we have to be careful about this, as this would require different behavior when the installer is running off the DVD vs. when it's bootstrapped via boot.iso/all.img, where an upgrade would have access to the full repository already (possibly via a local hard disk, not the network) and should be able to proceed just fine.
This is High priority bug for a good reason.
Making Mageia even better than ever is best direction.
In order to do right thing, this bug should be examined and fixed as soon as possible.
Packagers, please make the status to Assigned when you are working on this.
Feel free to reassign the bug if bad-triaged. Also, if bug is old, please close it.
On October 1st 2020, we will drop priority to normal.
I think we should just add text to that dialogue saying it need to access updated repositories to successfully upgrade the system.
