After googling this issue on upgrading fedora, working until
2:30 this morning, and not getting anywhere, I hope you guys can help.
I followed the guide:
using the gnome terminal.
things seemed to go well, until I got to the command
# dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=25
It went through the usual steps, I answered y and it completed,
but then it prompted me with an error message about google earth and
said to retry with --allowerasing, which I did, but still got the same

You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Public key for google-earth-stable-126.96.36.1997-0.x86_64.rpm is
So I did a gpg install for the public key of google-earth.
Same error message.
just to try I did:
#dnf system-upgrade reboot
No joy. Spent several hours googling for the error, for the
issue with gpg key, various other related lookups, but didn't find
anything that helped.
I had the same problem. Since it has been a week or so, and memory is
getting creaky ...
There is a new version of Google Earth (ver 7?, someone help me). It
doesn't use the google-earth.repo
So, I removed/backup up the google-earth.repo from /etc/yum.repos.d/
dnf removed google-earth-stable (I think that's the right name)
went into the /var/lib/dnf/system-upgrade (I think) and rm'd the
google-earth package that was sitting there.
From memory, that's what worked for me (but YMMV)
Once the upgrade completed, and everything seemed to be functioning
correctly, I then did a
dnf install <Path/And/Name/Of/google-earth-stable> package that I
downloaded from the Google Earth page.
