I have discovered that the
repositories that YaST is using are still pointing at the 42.3 versions,
so I suspect I now have a mixed bag of software from both the 42.3 and
the 15.0 repos. Doing another zypper dup simply tells me there is
nothing to update however...
That's because of the inane choice of release versions, from 13.x to 42.x to 15.x.
There is nothing
to update according to the package management system when there are bigger version numbers
repos than those in 15.0 repos, which is many if not most.
So I am wondering, could/should I go in to
/etc/zypp/repos.d and change all the BaseURL references for the
repositories from 42.3 to 15.0 (or perhaps to $releasever )? Seems like
I could, but I am guessing.... And then I would think doing a zypper
dup (or zypper dup --$releasever 15.0 ) might insure I have a
I've done lots of successful dups from oldLeap to newerLeap, and 13.1 and 13.2 to
Leap. The process
begins by changing e.g. all instances of 42.3 in /etc/zypp/repos.d/*repo to 15.0.
sed -i 's/42.3/15.0/g' /etc/zypp/repos.d/*repo
That followed by zypper dup might fix you up. For your situation, various solver.dupAllow*
may require adjustment for a full fixup, either in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf or on your zypper
I'd try first as-is, then check to see what old packages might be left over
zypper --no-refresh se -si | grep 'tem Pac' | grep -v plication
before deciding on a next step.
Zypper has a --dry-run option you might want to check out.
