Remember upgrade via zypper dup and wagon are both now supported.
This is not at all what I expected.

I first updated my repos as requested in:

I then disabled the old repos and added the 11.2 repos. (See detail 1
below my sig for exactly how my repos were setup.)

I then tried the last of the preparation steps:

zypper refresh # Refresh the local metadata and repo contents
zypper in zypper # Pull in zypper from the 11.2 repository

It is the results of zypper in zypper that I find very unexpected.

Yep, and in my opinion not very user friendly. Instead, 'zypper dup'
should install the new software stack into some tmp directory
and rerun itself. Maybe for 11.3...
