Well first of all why are you doing a "dup" rather than an "up"

I do it regularly like that to keep newest package regardless repository

What do you get, by comparison, if you run with "up" rather than 'dup"

zypper up doesn't suggest those changes.

Which most likely means that some packages will change origin. zypper
up will keep source repository; zypper dup will silently change it.

Yes, I know.


But what you apparently don't know is that version numbering between different repos for the same package is meaningless. Each packager uses their own numbering system. Just because the number is higher does not guarantee it is newer.
