Issues with doing a fedup upgrade from 23 to 24

Not sure what the issue is. Am currently 7 timezones away from my 
classroom machines, but wanted to update a few before I get back. Had to 
run the process 3 times on first machine before it finally did the upgrade.
fedup --network 24 --allowerasing
Process seems to go thru just fine, and then do 
dnf system-upgrade reboot
And it reboots, but then comes back to the 23 version.
Did that twice with VNC connection to machine, and then did it a 3rd time, in 
which I sshed in via another local machine. 
Thought that might be the issue, but then did a ssh connection upgrade 
process on two other machines twice, and they did not upgrade. Can't see 
the systems during the reboot process, and didn't see anything in the /var/log 
files to show any errors.
Trying on those machines again, but after the failed system-upgrade, it has 
to download all the files again??

Thanks.

fedora 23 bluetooth connection


Something changed (although not fatally):
I use Bluetooth speakers quite often.
Back in F22 or so after pairing the device merely turning it on caused
Fedora to connect to it.
Several months ago, now on F23,  (not sure when this problem appeared)
that changed and after turning the speaker on, I have to go into
Bluetooth Settings where the device appears as "Disconnected", select it
and activate the "Connection" switch several times and it will
eventually connect and be available for selection in the "Sound
Settings" after which it works fine.
Is there a path back? 

The setup is up to date Fedora 23 using Gnome 3.18.1-1.fc23.x86_64
TIA,

USB drive name change -

I have an external drive I set up yesterday that has the name 
"a3cd7e7f-254d-410a-b120-e02524f75a29." How can I change that to 
something like "/run/media/bobg/externaldrive?"

Date change on reboot

My F22 randomly crashes to a frozen state that requires a power cycle to restart.
When this happens, the time stamp on log files such as /var/log/messages 
changes for a while before reverting to the correct date and time.
Today,the sequence was:

Jul 24 10:55:55 mustang rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" 
swVersion="8.8.0" x-pid="853" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] start
Jul 15 11:19:20 mustang systemd: Stopped target Default.
Jul 15 11:19:25 mustang systemd: Stopping Default.

followed by some 17,000 lines with Jul 15 through to:

Jul 15 19:28:11 mustang named[1221]: client 122.61.143.143#39431 (isc.org): 
query (cache) 'isc.org/ANY/IN' denied
Jul 24 10:56:14 mustang rsyslogd-2177: imjournal: begin to drop messages due 
to rate-limiting
Sun Jul 24 10:56:16 ACST 2016 rc.fw
Jul 24 11:06:11 mustang rsyslogd-2177: imjournal: 2971956 messages lost due to 
rate-limiting

A similar thing happens in /var/log/secure (though with fewer Jul 15 entries).

The Jul 15 dates have been appearing at/after the last two or three crashes.

Even though the Jul 15 entries look to span over eight hours, the actual time 
span was only a minute or so.

Any suggestions as to what is happening here?

Cheers and thanks,

F24 gedit and large text files, background becomes black

I'm having myriad problems with gedit and large text files. OK 81MB
isn't really that large, it should be able to handle that without this
much difficulty.

First, it takes a long time to open, more than a minute, and this is
on an SSD. Next, it's doing some processing for a really long time
after it loads the document, about 5-6 minutes, while the process
consumes 100% CPU and the fans start running on high like I'm blowing
my hair dry rather than reading a document.

But the actual problem is, at some point I click out of gedit, then
back into gedit, and somehow the white background becomes black. So
it's a sea of black text on a black background and thus totally
useless.

Can anyone else reproduce this?

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1359476

I don't think there's anything magical about it being 81M. I don't
have this problem though with smaller files in the 1MB or less range.
I just don't know at what threshold it becomes a problem.

sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation

I upgraded one of my systems from F22 -> F24.  The upgrade went fine, 
however, after the upgrade when I do an ssh from the F24 system to the 
F22 system I get the following error:

sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation

I re ran ssh-keygen on the F24 to generate the keys.  I removed the F24 
system entries in the known_hosts file on the F22 system. I copied the 
F22 public key to the F24 system and added it to the authorized_keys 
file.  I still get the error.

Running ssh from the F22 system to the F24 system works fine after 
having copied the F22 public key to the F24 system and adding it to the 
authorized_keys file and deleting the F22 entries in the known_hosts file.

Now here's the strange part.  If I start on the F22 system and ssh to 
the F24 system and then ssh back to the F22 system I don't see the 
error, it connects without prompting for a password.

I also tried ssh F24 -> F24 and I get the error when the system on which 
I run the ssh is 192.168.10.5, but not when the originating system is my 
other F24 system at 192.168.10.2.  ssh F24 (192.168.10.2) -> F24 
(192.168.10.5) no error, but still prompts for password. ssh F24 
(192.168.10.2) -> F22 (192.168.10.65) works no password prompt.

Anyone have an idea of what's going on and how to fix it?

Any help is appreciated.

Paolo

bluetooth             491520  36 bnep,hidp,btbcm,btrtl,btusb,rfcomm,btintel

It looks like bluetooth module just drags in generic, Intel, Broadcom,
and Realtek device drivers, whether the hardware is present or not.

I was almost ready to give up on b43/bcma because I don't get even get
802.11n support with that driver. What I found on Broadcom's site for
Linux is hybrid-v35_64-nodebug-pcoem-6_30_223_271.tar.gz but I haven't
gone down that rabbit hole yet.

Timeline of a Fedora-24/KDE reboot

As you will see, there is a long delay (90 seconds or so)
while shutting down.
If anyone can throw light on this I should be very grateful.

This is the re-boot timeline on my Thinkpad T510:

f=>Leave=>Restart command given and confirmed
  19s just cursor on screen
f icon appears and remains on screen
  114s
Thinkpad icon appears
  14s automatic choice of kernel
bulb appears and slowly fills
  25s
login screen - after logging in
  5s
K icon appears and horizontal bar fills
  30s
panel appears

It will be seen that there is a long delay (almost 2 minutes)
while shutting down.

I see from "journalctl -b-1" that the delay occurs here
