Never had an OS take all night (overnight) to upgrade like Fedora 30 to 31 did, but I woke up and it was done and working without issue, so I can't complain too much. I rarely had an Ubuntu upgrade actually work. Usually ended up crashing at some point and me needing to start over.

Finally done with my projects and upgrading to Fedora 31!!
