This is the first failed DVD upgrade I get since 1998 :-/

I don't even know why.

Thanks for being the "canary in the coal-mine" Carlos. Drop a link
when you get the bug written.

Well, it has been solved as duplicate of bug 1094963, which although
solved means that it is impossible to upgrade to 15.0 (or install fresh
and import partitions) on machines that have encrypted partitions. Which
means all of my machines. Good grief :-/

When I tested the 15.0 Betas the import feature was not ready, so I
could not test it. It was added very late in the process. And it is buggy.

Another bug is that it may select all partitions for formatting, even
/home, which of course destroys all your data.

Well, I got information on private mail that since L42.3 YaST can update
itself while the DVD is loading, so that these type of bugs have less
impact and do not require reissuing the installation ISO.


«Starting on version 3.1.175, yast2-installation is able to update
itself during system installation. This feature will help to solve
problems with the installation even after the media has been released.
Check FATE#319716 for a more in-depth rationale.»

WOW! That would be a most fantastic trick to perform indeed when there is no connection to the internet -- ie, when the Cat 6 cable from the router is not plugged into the laptop and there is no wi-fi connection :-).

(that Fate is private, so I can not read it. Needs login I don't have).

The doc link says where SLE gets the updated version, but not where
openSUSE gets it, so that I can not find out when there is a new version
