Exactly. Zypper requires e.g. newer libzypp. And e.g. yast depends on
libzypp - that's why many yast packages must be pulled in, too. And it
goes similarly for the rest.

But YaST is not being upgraded, only zypper.

I think that zypper should add somehow (for 11.3) code to upgrade itself first (and only zypper and really needed libraries) as a prior and special step to a "dup". Similar to what YaST does when it sees an update to YaST: it download and installs first the changed YaST packages, restarts YaST, then restarts the upgrade, automatically.

It could be part of the dup sequence, or a new parameter.

And it should not touch anything else. It does not make much sense to start doing changes to things like kde with a zypper still not upgraded, and which could then do the wrong decisions.
