This is similar to the experience mentioned by Greg KH regarding
Tumbleweed "Tumbleweed for 11.3 is now closed" but in answer to that
thread I have updated 3 machines from 11.3 to 11.4, x86_64 and i386, by
changing the repos on those that are available and disabling those that
are not, I actually did it with 11.2 to 11.4 and that is also running.

Did you do zypper in zypper before zypper up because I did not.

No I intentionally didn't. It's not that I could not make it to upgrade with
some fiddling - the point is that for the average guy it won't work out.
Another user on that ticket could also reproduce this behaviour.

Maybe the problem is more with the most recent 11.3 updates that with the 11.4
repo.
