I upgraded my desktop to 11.3 months ago via "zypper dup".

Since then I've been doing "zypper patch" routinely and have been
getting security updates.

By chance I just typed "zypper up".

It looks like my full system needs to be updated per zypper up:
1769 packages to upgrade, 4 new, 1 to remove.

I'm fairly confused by that. Can anyone explain?

zypper patch will install the official online updates.

zypper up will just update any new RPMs in your active repositories.

Ciao, Marcus
