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

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

zypper up doesn't suggest those changes.

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

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
their own numbering system. Just because the number is higher does
guarantee it is newer.

This is news, indeed. But again, I hadn't dad issues with that. When I
off installation of recommended packages in /etc/zypp/zypper.conf this
disappeared. BTW, I turned on colours there. Very nice. :-) So there
apparently some changes in recommended packages or behaviour of zypper,
is more pushing recommended packages. Well, OK, lets keep with „up“, as
seems to be the only way.
Thank You,

Before everyone puts arrows in you, tumbleweed mandates zypper dup be used.

I always like to know exactly where packages are coming from so I use:

zypper dup --from <repo#>

I get the repo number from zypper lr.
