Such horror stories are not helpful at all. zypper dup may fail to upgrade some packages, when package structure changed significantly. It may have problems with dependencies for packages not part of distribution. But assuming zypper dup actually completed without errors - what can cause it to mysteriously "fail later"?

Besides this list is full of examples when clean new installations "seem to work and fail later".

Someone reported on irc having issues with network.service after doing 13.1 to 42.1 today. Although I'm guessing that never seemed to work.
