I'm installing from USB pen drive, but that shouldn't make any
difference. I also have installed without worrying about a network
connection in the past. sorta smells like what
you're going through.

If you'd like to get upgraded today, since it's Sunday and many regulars
aren't around, I suggest doing as I do for fresh installs, and put your
network configuration on cmdline as
explains to install using a fixed IP and wired Ethernet.

Alternatively, do what I do for virtually all upgrading since Zypper grew
past infancy. I use it to upgrade instead of installation media. First do
zypper clean -a, then change the files in /etc/zypp.repos.d/ to point to
13.2, then zypper ref, then zypper dup. It's simple enough, and effective.

Well, I've got it installed, but now WiFi won't work. I get an error
"Failed to add connection No session found for UUID 1000 (unknown)"

With this and the failed networking at install, I have to wonder how
much testing this went through.

Also look for messages in the boot log, or just switch to console 1.
On my machine I had to run a command to fetch firmware before the wifi came up.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
