[Spacewalk-list] Upgrade Fedora25->26 only with spacewalk and commandline

Hello  Martin,

This was the approach I tested because with centOS this update -> 
switch-channels -> upgrade worked with little tuning.

With Fedora there are loads of missing dependencys which I hat to skip 
with '--allow-erasing'  - bad practice.

After all the upgrade-command installed many new packages but after 
rebooting there is still Fedora 25 under /etc/system-release.

beside that, there is an error concerning a missing key for new kernel 
so that I cannot update kernel-core.

Any other approaches?
