(Very useful if you have many repos with duplicate packages.)

Other thing is that yum will not abort on impossibility to download a
package. Basically, on a flaky network connection, doing "yum -y update;
yum -y update; yum -y update" will succeed because the packages are
first all downloaded and when impossible to do so, next one is
downloaded. This is something that facilitates nightly unattended upgrades.



If you try zypper in 11.0 it if happen soft error (like temporary denial service), it try after 60 seconds again and have 3 attempts and then fail. So if problem is temporary, then you update during night.
