For "zypper up" you NEED a package with the same 'name' as the one

proposed above.
For the "update" code path only packages with the same
name are considered at all for a update. This is BY DESIGN.

You are talking utter nonsense again. zypper up totally respects
Obsoletes/Provides, if only you had bothered to check. But nooo, you
just had to fantasize again.
Seriously, just stop it.


# zypper up
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...

The following NEW package is going to be installed:
test-bar

The following package is going to be REMOVED:
test-foo

1 new package to install, 1 to remove.
Overall download size: 2.2 KiB. Already cached: 0 B No additional space will
be used or freed after the operation.
Continue? [y/n/? shows all options] (y):

And, really, just WHERE from should libsatsolv get the
information that the package kernel-desktop is superseeded
by package kernel-default?

From the Obsoletes/Provides tag carrier obviously, in this case
kernel-default//test-bar.
