I have been trying to learn how to do things the Opensuse way.

Manually deleting files so as to upset the consistency of the RPM database is
certainly NOT the OpenSUSE way!

=====================================================

At this point, I think that I and Patrick might like to know just what
repositories you DO have configured.

So, can you please show us the output of running, as root, 'zypper lr'

I tried to upgrade to Leap 15 and the DVD upgrade stalled at the first entry, examining USB devices. It had already loaded USB devices during boot, so am a bit confused. I cannot get almost anything to work on this laptop:-(.

Don,

I think that it is time for you to format the HD which is in that laptop you bought and start from scratch: install Leap 15.0 from a DVD ... and then let's take it from there.

From what I have read above in this thread, you are confused about what you have already done and about what you should do and we, at this end, are also getting confused.

So, start from scratch: format the laptop's HD and install Leap 15.0 (and install without the uefi requirement, the laptop won't be able to handle it anyway I suspect).

Ouch! Sorry, I forgot that you said you had a problem in installing Leap 15.0 and therefore forgot to add this to my comment above: when you start the DVD to install Leap, add the instruction 'nomodeset' (without the single quotation marks ' ) on the kernel command line. This will/should get you past that sudden stop in the installation process which you experienced (and which I, and many others, have the good misfortune of experiencing).
