On Ubuntu, after you have logged in, it asks you if
you want to upgrade. You click yes or no. There is nothing to configure
or isos to burn. We have nothing like that.

We do have something effectively equivalent that is modestly more complicated:

1-login on a vtty as root (vtty recommended but not required)
2-# zypper clean -a
3-navigate to /etc/zypp/repos.d/
4-edit each file there, replacing each instance of 13.1 with 13.2
5-# zypper ref
6-# zypper dup
7-reboot into 13.2


It occurs to me that unlike a fresh install, this is not going to do
anything to your partitions, install a new root file system, alter your
configuration in many ways. If you have a working network/wifi it
shouldn't alter that. I've done this before, though when I get a new
drive I do carry out a 'proper' install.
