Does this still apply for the upgrade from 13.2 to Leap 42.1? Which method
works better in practice?

IMHO, yes. But I'm biased: I wrote most of that page ;-)
Oh thanks.

I prefer the Zypper system upgrade method for PCs will much packages from
different repositories.

You can also add repositories on the offline method.
I know. But you probably don't have an editor for *.repo files, copy&paste etc.
during Offline upgrade.

Zypper system upgrade also causes less downtime.)

Depends... Internet speed, for instance.
The Zypper switch --download-only helps here in step 1.
Me, I run such zypper dups in console mode.
Yes. I prefer Tmux or Screen for safety.
