If you choose "upgrade" from from a USB installation image, you will be
presented with a list of all your current repos, and will be asked if you wish to keep any
of them. Any that you have installed yourself can be checked to be kept and you will be
able at that time to edit the URLs to point to the 15.3 repos.
I suggest you change all version numbers (e.g. 15.2) to $releasever, which Yast, zypper,
etc will always translate to the proper number. If you do not believe me, go into
YaST/Repositories right now and edit a repo to make that change. Then you will see that
YaST properly interprets this as follows:
Raw URL: http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/$releasever/repo/oss/
(You may need to restart the repositories module to see this.)
Then the proper repos for 15.3 will be used during the upgrade process, and you will not
be faced with any after-install mess of re-installing those repos and updating all that
software to reflect this.
As I mentioned in another reply to you, I kept the Packman and libdvdcss repos when I did
my upgrade, and all worked as intended.
Thank you. You've been most helpful.
(Even to the point of educating me. I had no idea of the "releasever"
option - I guess because I first did it using the literal URLs more than
20 years ago and had been doing it that way, slavishly and unquestioned,
