[opensuse-factory] 'zypper dist-upgrade' tells me that 2 packages will be downgraded. Using '--no-cd' prevents that

openSUSE Tumbleweed newbie here. Thanks in advance for reading this.

I've been running Tumbleweed for about a month now. After reading mailing list
conversations, I see that running 'dup' or 'dist-upgrade' is the proper way to
update Tumbleweed so I have the latest stable packages installed. Seeing that
there was a new snapshot available, I ran 'sudo zypper dist-upgrade --dry-run
--details' to remind myself what was going to change.

I that this warning that two packages would be downgraded:

The following 2 packages are going to be downgraded:
libgnutls28 3.3.14-1.1 -> 3.2.21-1.1 x86_64 openSUSE-20150319-0
libgnutls28-32bit 3.3.14-1.1 -> 3.2.21-1.1 x86_64 openSUSE-20150319-0

I'm working with a virtual installation, so I knew I could revert to a snapshot
if things went wrong. I proceeded and was basically told to insert the CD. I
forget the exact wording, but once I realized what it was trying to do I
cancelled the dist-upgrade (since no packages had been installed yet) and used
the '--no-cd' option. At that point _no_ downgrades were listed when I ran
'sudo zypper --no-cd dist-upgrade --dry-run --details'.


* Should the CD/DVD repo be disabled upon a successful installation?
* Should I use --no-cd instead?
* In which scenarios would I want the CD/DVD repo enabled IF I have a stable
Internet connection available?
** When I tested a 12.3 to 13.2 upgrade (12.3 to 13.1, 13.1 to 13.2) I had to
use the --no-cd option each time or the upgrades would fail

Thank you for your time.
