Error Upgrading Fedora 27 to Fedora 28 with Cinnamon desktop

When attempting to upgrade my Fedora 27 to Fedora 28 running the Cinnamon desktop, I received the following error:

dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=28

Problem: package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-1:1.12.4-3.fc27.x86_64 requires, but none of the providers can be installed
- libchromaprint-1.2-8.fc27.x86_64 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
- problem with installed package gstreamer1-plugins-bad-1:1.12.4-3.fc27.x86_64

It turns out the name for this gstreamer plugins package has changed names, and it’s goofing up the dependencies path for libchromaprint. Minor issue, but it stops my upgrade cold.

I came up with this workaround: upgrade libchromaprint and gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free before trying to update the entire distro. So:

sudo dnf install libchromaprint-1.4.2-2.fc28.x86_64 gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free --releasever=28 --allowerasing

You can now proceed with your regular upgrade process.
