[opensuse] Strange dependency problem during distribution upgrade

Dear list,

I tried to update 10.1 to 10.2 using the download-iso. Yast was 
resolving the dependencies, and I followed the suggestions. Now, 
after two iterations of dependency display and resolving, the 
dependency-resolver-screen reappeared, but it was blank! No package 
displayed, no choice offered, just blank. 

I tried re-checking several times, to no avail. Tried various 
combinations of settings for the problematic packages that yast 
displayed in the main window, also with setting everything to be 
deleted - without success. Yast won't let me continue the upgrade 

It might have to do with the fact that I kept my system current with 
smart - including the guru and packman channels.

Did anyone observe this behavior before? 

I was tempted using smart for a distribution upgrade, but hesitate 
since I can't afford sending this system to nirvana with a failed 
upgrade attempt.

I grateful for any suggestions on how I can upgrade my system!

Thanks in advance,
