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.
Without changing the package vendor.

Ciao, Marcus

How about showing the results of zypper lr

Could be a misconfigured repo is active (factory?).
