The tool for Fedora to upgrade the distribution is FedUp. Check this page for how to upgrade Fedora 19 to Fedora 20: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedUp#How_Can_I_Upgrade_My_System_with_FedUp.3F

Be sure to check the bugs in Fedora 20 before the upgrading: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F20_bugs#Upgrade_issues

Generally, it contains 3 steps:

Preparation

# yum install fedup fedora-release
# fedup --network 20

Execute the upgrading

Select System Upgrade in the grub2 entry after rebooting your systems.

Cleanup

# rpm --rebuilddb
# yum distro-sync --setopt=deltarpm=0

It is reported that google chrome need to be reinstalled after the upgrading:

# yum erase google-chrome-\* && yum install google-chrome-stable
