I think you want to install the "postgresql-upgrade" package, and then run
Fedora 22 includes a script called postgresql-setup which claims to be able to
do the upgrade.
I couldn't get it to work - because of the locale change and also because it
does not allow the specification of the new cluster location.
Eventually, I used initdb and pg_upgrade to do the job.

Whenever you can, avoid installing modules from CPAN. They will probably
always break on a platform upgrade. Instead, install the module from rpm:
dnf install perl-Net-LibIDN
Thanks for that. I was not aware that this was possible.
I eventually fixed this by downloading and installing the latest libidn (as
well as the one that was there) and cpan upgrade and reinstalling a bunch of
There seems to be no compatibility between PERL 5.18 and 5.20.

I've seen some users have similar problems on GNOME upgrades. It appears to
be gnome-settings-daemon crashing in the cases I've seen, and the only way
I've found to clear it is to remove .config/dconf/user, which nukes *all* of
the settings in dconf. It sucks, but GNOME decided they wanted a single
binary configuration store, so...

changed the screen saver settings.
I used to use the screen saver that trawls through my image files but that
seems to have disappeared in F22.
