Fedora 27 has reached its End of Life (EOL) on November 30th, 2018. This means no further updates will be released for the operating system. Users are urged to upgrade to the latest Fedora as soon as possible to make sure their PC isn’t leftover with security loopholes unpatched.
Fedora 27 was released on November 14, 2017, and its Fedora community members released about 9,500 updates. Most notably, it included GNOME 3.26, LibreOffice 5.4,
simpler container storage setup in the Fedora Atomic Host, the new Modular Server, and other improvements.
Fedora Release Cycle
For those new to Fedora Release cycle, the team offers updates for a Fedora release until a month after the second subsequent version releases. For example, updates for Fedora 28 continue until one month after the release of Fedora 30. Fedora 29 continues to be supported up until one month after the release of Fedora 31. Applying the same logic, one can easily say that since Fedora 29 was released a month ago, it is obviously EOL for Fedora 27 now.

You can upgrade to Fedora 28 or the latest Fedora 29. Launch the “Terminal” and enter the following commands one at a time followed by pressing the enter key.
