I have not tried with dhcp6 only.
Just tried it, works fine.

I think changing both interfaces to dhcp4 should solve the problem
for Gustav.
I tried to edit the interfaces in Yast Network Devices. However,
because I am using networkmanager (or wicked, not sure), the
interfaces can not be edited unless I select to configure with ifup (I
can not remember the last time I had to do that).
Ah. I'm sorry, I hadn't thought of the NetworkManager option. I don't
really know NM very well, but presumably it has the same options
In the network manager GUI there is an option to edit the interface
settings. There are two tabs, one ipv4 and one ipv6. It's not
intuitive for me, can't figure out how to set what is needed. Gustav.
Not familiar with Nm but wicked will not (I cannot make it) work on my new
toshiba laptop. Looking at the ipv6 tab, I suggest changing "method" from
automatic to ignored>

ps: Experiment, you can always change it back.
I changed both my wireless and wired connections as you suggested.
Restarted the network. Apper now no longer told me the system was
offline, zypper ref refreshed all the repos except packman. I then was
able to update the system via YOU. It looked great, but then I tried
another zypper ref and all repos were unreachable! And Apper again said
the network was offline, etc.

I did not try experimenting yet, I'll do that tomorrow. But this
temporary fix is the same as occurred when I initially managed to
reinstall libzypp. VERY ODD! Thanks, Gustav.
