YaST is great, but on tumbleweed I prefer the "zypper dup --download-only
-- auto-agree-with-licenses" incantation first, before finally running
"zypper dup".

On TW *you have* to use zypper dup.
But you can use "download in advance then install" in a single command.

Sory to interupt with a question. What is this single command?

zypper dup --download-in-advance

obviously :-)
