Confusing as it says it can't update from an existing 10.3 to another,
e.g trying to go from Alpha6 to Alpha7. Did a 10.2 YOU on another box,
but it doesn't appear there as an option.
What's it for, feature not yet working perhaps?

You probably (definitely) don't have the latest yast2-update package...

Alpha6:
yast2-update-2.15.14-4.i586.rpm

Alpha7:
yast2-update-2.15.19-2.i586.rpm
yast2-update-FACTORY-2.15.19-2.i586.rpm

This is part of the package-changelog:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Jul 23 14:18:05 CEST 2007 - locilka@xxxxxxx

- Package has been split into two: yast2-update and
  yast2-update-FACTORY (System/FACTORY update) (FATE #302017).
- 2.15.18

-------------------------------------------------------------------
...
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Jul 18 08:53:15 CEST 2007 - locilka@xxxxxxx

- Warn user if the /boot partition is too small (less than 64 MB,
  resp. 200 on IA64). User can either cancel updating or confirm
  it despite the risk of possible failure (#258563).
- Fixed update_proposal to warn 'non-matching versions' only in case
  the update is performed on a running system.
- More debugging for device-names translation during upgrade.
- 2.15.15

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Please, update to the latest packages first.

(or PPC or x86_64...)

Bye

Thanks, on i586, those are the 2 I have seen dependency problems with, I shall try installing by hand and go on from there.
Regards
Sid.
