Does 11.4 have /etc/os-release?

It should not look for that file.

Yes, it should, os-release replaces the old method..the only
supported upgrade path is from 12.3, anything else assumes that you
know exactly what you are doing.


The "zypper dup" method supports only the previous version.

Wrong. BTDT. e.g. 12.1->12.3, 11.2(32bit)->11.4(64bit) ... I might try
12.1->13.1 ;) But such Upgrades are *not* supported and I know what
I'm doing and I can repair a botched upgrade by booting from the
unpacked DVD-image where not even rpm works due to being 64bit but
only 32bit libs still installed...

And I do _not_ advise doing such upgrades.

Since software cannot be foolproof, we should get rid of the the fools.
