You didn't mention Fedora. I speak from experience, particularly from

scrap all efforts to complete the upgrade process and resort to a clean
installation. Usually the failure happens after you've wasted a
significant amount of time and is so frustrating that you will swear off
ever upgrading a Fedora release again especially if it is for more than 2
major releases. FC8 has been end of life for 2 years and a lot has changed
since then so expect problems.
