You are not mad, but certainly it is a superfluous operation, as a
"zypper up" includes what "zypper patch" would do.
I guess that's why I've never seen much reason to use zypper patch.
Just now I updated an office desktop - zypper patch wanted to upgrade 4
packages, zypper up wanted to upgrade 332.

Now.....let's get THIS straight from the start :-) . Are you talking about 'UPGRADE' or 'update'? :-)

For myself, I will use the term 'update', right? :-)

Next time allow 'zypper patch' to first update those 4 packages - and look at the results. Sometimes 'patch' will leave a message to re-run 'patch' as the just-completed 'patch' run has resulted in other packages now requiring to be 'patched'.

And after doing the 'patch'-polka, then run 'up'.


Secrecy is completely inadequate for democracy but totally appropriate
for tyranny. If the minister will not inform the public, then we are
within our right to assume the worst.
