[K12OSN] Update rather than install??

Not sure about Fedora, but I think in general an
update will leave all your existing system settings
intact, and just update the software packages.  Since
the problem you're experiencing may be because of your
settings, I think it would be a better bet to do a
clean install.  Of course if you have the time, try
the update and if it doesn't work then you can do a
clean install.
